People Talking About Architecture – 04.20.2006

Columbia University:
Symposium - The Critical Legacies of Manfredo Tafuri
9:30am–6:00pm -- Avery Hall, Wood Auditorium
From the Columbia Website, “A decade after his death, Manfredo Tafuri continues to occupy a pivotal position within contemporary architectural discourse both as a protagonist of the critical debates of the 1970s and as a historian who elucidated every period of architectural history from the fifteenth century to the twentieth. In addition to marking the publication of the English translation of his last work, Interpreting the Renaissance: Princes, Cities, Architects, the conference will take this event as an occasion for a new assessment of his critical legacies.” Speakers will include Mark Wigley; Daniel Sherer; Diana Agrest; Marco de Michelis; Andrew Leach; Peter Eisenman; Kenneth Frampton; Preston Scott Cohen; Anthony Vidler; Reinhold Martin; Joan Ockman; Mark Rakatansky; Carla Keyvanian; and (of course), Guido Zuliani.
