Join us for our first Gallery Talk this academic year with architectural historian Patricia Morton!

Thursday, November 8, 2018
Wurster Gallery, room 121

6:30 to 7 pm — Light refreshments
7 to 8 pm — Lecture

Free to UC Berkeley Students, Staff, Faculty, and Friends of the EDA

Suggested $10 donation for those outside UC Berkeley

Morton will draw on the EDA's Turnbull / MLTW Collection to discuss how the design of The Sea Ranch was informed by contemporaneous theories of place as posited by Charles Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, Lawrence Halprin, and others.

Patricia A. Morton is Associate Professor of architectural history and chair of the Urban Studies minor at the University of California, Riverside. She has lectured and published widely on architectural history and race, gender and identity. She is the author of Hybrid Modernities: Architecture and Representation at the 1931 International Colonial Exposition in Paris (MIT Press; Japanese edition, Brücke). Her current project, Paying for the Public Life, focuses on written and built work by architect Charles W. Moore and his contemporaries and examines the ways American architects negotiated a contested postwar public realm in creating an architecture and urbanism responsive to contemporary society. She is past editor of the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians and current Second Vice President of the Society of Architectural Historians.

Hope to see you there!
