This faculty publication discussion will center on Designing the Modern City: Urbanism Since 1850, written by Eric P. Mumford, the Rebecca and John Voyles Professor of Architecture. The comprehensive survey traces the global history of urbanism and urban design from the industrial revolution to the present.
As part of the event, several invited panelists will share their perspectives on how architects have attempted to shape the form of cities under the ongoing conditions of modernization. Each speaker will focus on how a topic from the book relates to design issues that they have addressed or considered in their practice or considered as historians. Robert McCarter, the Ruth and Norman Moore Professor of Architecture, will serve as moderator.
