Terry Smith: The Architecture Of The Aftermath

AIR DATE: October 19, 2012

We used to debate whether skyscrapers were a sound use of modern technology but they all seemed to be the symbol of the modern world. Since 9/11, argues Terry Smith, we are much more focused on using them as a memorial. Smith, the author of "The Architecture of Aftermath," will be speaking about this change in construction and culture this Thursday at the Flamingo Hotel-Casino as a keynote speaker at the Modernist Studies Association.
Terry Smith, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Contemporary Art History and Theory, University of Pittsburgh and author of "The Architecture of Aftermath"
