I totally forgot about this until I was catching up with the Daily Dose (mostly I forgot because I have class tonight and can’t go. Stupid class).

The Second J. Carter Brown Memorial Lecture “A Conversation with Daniel Libeskind”

Wednesday, May 6, 2009 | 4:00pm
Salomon Center for Teaching, De Ciccio Family Auditorium
Brown University

“I think architecture is a dialogue…. It’s not a monologue…. It’s a cultural medium. It has to be able to communicate.”

Daniel Libeskind is an international figure in architectural practice and urban design. With over forty projects worldwide, Libeskind’s practice extends from museums and concert halls to convention centers, universities, hotels, shopping centers, and residential projects.

In this conversation with Dietrich Neumann, professor of history of art and architecture at Brown University, Libeskind will discuss his design practice, his architectural philosophy, and some of his most important projects. A book signing will follow at the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage.

Free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage.

The Salomon Center is through the arch off Waterman at Brown Street, you can find it on the interactive campus map here.
