Event description

Description

Women, Architecture & “The Most Modern Building in America”

Guess speaker: Gabrielle Esperdy, Ph.D




Cincinnati Preservation Association is pleased to announce our 2019 Fall Forum. Author and architectural historian Dr. Gabrielle Esperdy will present a talk on the overlooked women who helped shaped the course of modern architecture as a practice and a profession. The talk will highlight the work of pioneering modern architect Natalie de Blois, designer of Cincinnati’s Terrace Plaza and many of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill’s most iconic mid-20th century buildings.

Dr. Esperdy is associate professor of architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Her work looks at the intersection of architecture, consumerism and modernism in urban and suburban landscapes in the United States, paying particular attention to the ways social, economic and political issues shape the built environment. Her books include Modernizing Main Street, published in 2008 and the forthcoming American Autopia, examining how the automobile influenced architectural and urban discourse after World War II. She has also written extensively on the experience of women in the American architecture profession from the 1950s to the present.
