This summer, the Center for Architecture launched its inaugural Presidential Lecture Series, spearheaded by Board President Barry Bergdoll. The series, which is tied to an upcoming exhibition, will be organized as multi-disciplinary conversations between an architect and a practitioner from another field, moderated by Bergdoll.

Contemporary American culture and society have long been disconnected—fractured even—with people divided by needs, generations, and beliefs, as well by race and income level. In the face of social isolation, the series and exhibition will explore how environments that foster cooperation, interaction, and mutual assistance can be an antidote to the intense divisions in American life. Issues of equity, health, aging, and racial disparities are among the vital issues at stake.

The conversations take place on Mondays at 2pm EST. 

Upcoming lectures:
Presidential Lecture: Sarah Wigglesworth and Karen Kubey on Building for Aging, August 3
Presidential Lecture: Dagmar Richter and Marc Norman on Cooperative Housing, August 10
Presidential Lecture: Victor Pineda on the Work of World Enabled, August 17
Presidential Lecture: Peter Robinson on the Work of BlackSpace, August 24

Inaugural Presidential Lecture:
Presidential Lecture: Mindy Fullilove and Ron Shiffman on Main Streets, recorded on July 27, and available on-line
