Visiting Scholar Samuel D. Albert presents his research.
This talk is an introduction to, and broad overview of the material for a book about architecture and urbanism in the British Mandate of Palestine (1918-1948). Concentrating solely on Jerusalem, the paper explores the urban design and construction activity of the three major groups building there in the period: Britons, Jews, and Arabs. Focusing on the ways these groups interacted this talk considers the strategies they devised – their interpretations of modern and historical building – as the means of formulating a representative architecture in the Holy Land.
Samuel D. Albert was educated at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Vienna and received his Ph.D. in Art History from Yale University in 1997. After working as a Research Associate for two years at the Center for Advanced Studies in the Visual Arts (CASVA) at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., he was a Lecturer in the Art History Department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem as well as several other academic institutions in Israel.
Samuel D. Albert was a Visiting Scholar at the CCA in 2004.
