Kurt W. Forster presents his new book Schinkel: A Meander through his Life and Work, a portrait of nineteenth-century German architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel as deeply attuned to the upheavals of his time. Forster shows how Schinkel’s life and work was paradigmatic of the tentative emergence of modern architecture, the development of a new understanding of the work of the architect, and the changing relationship between architects and the state.
Kurt W. Forster is an architectural historian, curator and writer. He has taught at Stanford, MIT, the ETH, and Yale, and has held key roles at the Getty and at the CCA.
Forster will be joined in conversation by architect and architectural historian Martin Bressani, a Professor of McGill University and Director of the Peter Guo-hua Fu School of Architecture.
