Professor Westfall will be speaking on: “The Future City: Why Meddle With a Good Thing?”

Men invented cities to escape barbarism and live nobly and well, and they invented and constantly adapted architecture to facilitate that purpose. Have we seen the end of that history?

Carroll William Westfall, a renowned architectural historian and the Frank Montana Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Notre Dame, will discuss this important question during his lecture. As a specialist in both Italian Renaissance and American architecture, Westfall has focused largely on the relationship between architecture and politics in the history of urban form in his books and articles.

This lecture is part of the 2012-13 SCAD School of Building Arts lecture series entitled: “The Next City.”  All lectures in this series are free and open to the public. For more information, visit scadmoa.org or call 912.525.7191.
