This program explores the role that architectural arbiters have had and continue to have in shaping the history and defining the legacy of modern architecture in the United States. Through a lecture and discussion, scholars, curators, and architects address the process of selection and the values that they employ each time they design a course or exhibition, or publish a book or an article. Participants include Sarah Herda, Director, The Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, Chicago; Toshiko Mori, architect and Robert P. Hubbard Professor in the Practice of Architecture and Chair of the Department of Architecture, Harvard University; Karen Stein, former Editorial Director, Phaidon Press; and Gwendolyn Wright, architectural historian and Professor of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, Columbia University. Barry Bergdoll, The Philip Johnson Chief Curator, Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art, moderates the discussion. The event is a collaboration between The Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation and The Museum of Modern Art. Funded in part by a grant from the Rockfeller Brothers Fund.
