Salomon Frausto lecture!

28 Apr

The final lecture of the Clarence Ward series is upon us!  Salomon Frausto, of The Berlage Institute in Rotterdam, will be here to discuss a unique, landmark project–a global survey of architectural and urbanist activity of all kinds–that will appear in print and on-line this year.  He is also the editor of one of the most widely read and exciting architectural journals around, Hunch, and an all-around architectural discourse machine!  I hope that you’ll be able to join us for what is sure to be an exciting lecture and discussion!

Salomon Frausto, Head of Architectural Broadcasting, The Berlage Institute, Rotterdam

Salomon Frausto develops the Institute’s public program of events, exhibitions, online interactivity, and publications with the aim of further expanding and complementing the research pursued at the Institute for presentation to a global architecture audience. An advocate for improved and diverse architectural literacy, Salomon Frausto teaches, publishes and lectures internationally to sharpen awareness of the contemporary built environment. He graduated with degrees in architecture from the University of Michigan and Columbia University. From 2001–2007 he coordinated the public and scholarly programs of the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture at Columbia University. He is coeditor, with Joan Ockman, of Architourism: Authentic, Exotic, Escapist, Spectacular published by Prestel in 2005. This volume of essays and projects by leading scholars, critics, artists, and architects explores the role of architecture in the contemporary tourist imagination. Trained as an architect, he is the editor of the Berlage Institute’s flagship publication Hunch.
