LECTURES + JURIES
Exploring Themes that derive from my Research, Writing, or Professional Practice manifested in invitations to numerous venues.
Related events are grouped together, and Juries were interesting, as we 'danced within' local Social & Professional Values.
These are some of the occasions. I was fortunate to often find myself in Series of "Good Company", academic as well as practitioner peers.
My research on the Life and Career of Eero Saarinen provided opportunities to lecture at various venues, and in the context of
others from both Professional and Academic communities; I was in "Good Company" during all those invited places and people.
Included were several survivors from the period.
I was asked to speak at the headquarters.
Saarinen is seen on a full-size partial maquette of the stairs descending down to the Mississippi River.
I was priviledged to stay in Aalto's own house (in his bedroom) which was an interesting experience as it was another "work-live" design, which had his personal Studio.
As you can see by the date, it was Winter, and there were about 3 hours of 'daylight'.
See PUBLISHED WRITINGS 8 (ptah) for an essay published by the Academy.
"Saarinen vs Saarinen and The Search for a Modern American Architecture"
[long Lecture - if so inclined]
My interest in the evolving American City as represented by Houston, Texas as well as the broader notion of 'Regionalism' resulted in invited lectures.in a range of venues.
