Architecture's Appeal Launch and Panel

Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Glass Corner, Parsons East Building 25 East 13th Street, Room E206, New York, NY 10003

Parsons School of Constructed Environments will be hosting Architecture’s Appeal, a panel discussion and book-launch celebrating a new volume of essays from a diverse group of well-known scholars that examines the role of history and theory in contemporary architectural praxis.

Conceived to honor the teaching and scholarship of Dr. Alberto Pérez-Gómez, the Saidye Rosner Bronfman Professor in History and Theory of Architecture at McGill University, whose work over the past thirty years has significantly contributed to the discourse of architectural history and theory, Architecture’s Appeal will include a panel conversation with Dr. Pérez-Gómez and the two co-editors, Dr. Negin Djavaherian and Dr. Marc Neveu.

The event includes an installation of illustrations contributed by five Parsons SCE graduate and undergraduate alumni to the lead article of the book, written by SCE Associate Dean Robert Kirkbride, who will host.
