    Selected Topics in Architecture: The Architecture of Flight: Eero Saarinen’s Terminals in New York and Virginia

    David Brashear, Architectural Historian As commercial air travel expanded rapidly following the end of World War II, a new kind of facility was needed to handle growing passenger volumes.  Airfields gave way to airports, and in this session we will examine Eero Saarinen’s futuristic designs for the TWA Flight Center at New York’s JFK Airport and Dulles International Airport in suburban Washington.  Both of these facilities represented high points of modernism in the middle of the twentieth century, and showcased the sculptural virtuosity of their creator.

    Selected Topics in Architecture: Reading Rooms and Libraries in Colonial America

    Jill Lord, Ph.D. In his Autobiography, Benjamin Franklin wrote, “[L]ibraries have improv’d the general Conversation of the Americas.”  Colonial Americans used a variety of library types, which included: private libraries, religious libraries, university libraries, and society, or subscription, libraries.  After introducing each of these in this session, we will explore the history and architecture of three important society libraries: The Library Company of Philadelphia (founded in 1731); Redwood Library (1747) located in Newport, Rhode Island; and the Charles Town Library Society (1761) in Charleston, South Carolina.

    Selected Topics in Architecture: Modern Design and Its Debt to the Bauhaus

    Isabelle Hyman, Ph.D., Professor Emertus, New York University Begun in Weimar, Germany after the end of World War I as a new school for the teaching of crafts, the Bauhaus played a critical role in replacing traditional design and decoration with a new language of form and materials.  In this session, we will investigate the early Bauhaus and its workshops, and the dramatic impact it had on the appearance of 20th century art, interior decoration, and architecture.

    Selected Topics in Architecture: Time Out of Line: the Artist and the Architectural Model

    Carolyn Yerkes, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Art & Archaeology, Princeton University In this session, we will explore the historical episodes when architectural models were the subject of art works. What role did models play in Renaissance architecture, and what can these models tell us about the process of design? Prints, paintings, and drawings of models invite us to tackle these issues, by bringing to the fore a new corpus of images. Drawings of models also present problems of representation: when and how did artists begin to survey architectural models, and why did they consider them a suitable subject for portraiture? Answers to these questions help us to drill deeper into problems of artistic process during the Renaissance. May 5, 2015 at 6:00PM Sheridan Gallery
