European Architecture continues to inspire designers around the globe. Confronting current challenges like climate change and social equity, European architects apply traditional and advanced technologies and innovative design approaches to projects of exceptional merit. Two linked presentations will cover notable examples from the fields of housing, health care, arts and education, public open space, and more, to reveal the scope and quality of European architecture in the 21st century.
The presenters are professors emeriti of architecture, Brooke of Temple University and Judith of Drexel University, in Philadelphia. Currently they are Center Associates at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University, and Visiting Scholars at the Aga Khan Documentation Center at MIT, in Cambridge. They live in Cushing.
