Paul Goldberger: Architecture Criticism in the Age of Twitter

26 September 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Organized by: MIT Department of Architecture
Venue: Room 7-429, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
77 Mass Ave

Paul Goldberger, who The Huffington Post has called “the leading figure in architecture criticism,” is now a Contributing Editor at Vanity Fair. From 1997 through 2011 he served as the Architecture Critic for The New Yorker, where he wrote the magazine’s celebrated “Sky Line” column. He also holds the Joseph Urban Chair in Design and Architecture at The New School in New York City. He was formerly Dean of the Parsons School of Design, a division of The New School. He is the author of several books, most recently a full-length biography of the architect Frank Gehry, entitled Building Art: The Life and Work of Frank Gehry, published by Alfred A. Knopf in 2015. The Washington Post called the Gehry biography “an enthralling story…more gripping than any novel” and said that it “gives deep insight into the life of a revolutionary architect and modern architecture. Both architects and lay people will benefit from it.”
