  • Replicating Mount Vernon

    Washington | Dates: 03 Jun, 2014
    A Lecture by Lydia Mattice Brandt, PhD - Tuesday, June 3, 2014

    Mount Vernon is the most replicated building in the United States. Americans slap those spindly white columns onto funeral homes, dry-cleaners, motels, and McMansions. But how and why did George Washington's eccentrically vernacular mansion get translated onto such a wide range of commercial and residential buildings? Over the past 200 years, Mount Vernon has become an iconic architectural image that is flexible enough to serve an astonishing range of building types and functions, political points of view, and understandings of the American past.

    Lydia Mattice Brandt is an assistant professor at the University of South Carolina, where she teaches architectural history; the history of American art; and the theory, methods, and practice of historic preservation. This summer, she is a fellow at the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington, where she is finishing her book on the image of Mount Vernon in popular American architecture and culture.

    The First Congregational United Church of Christ
    945 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20001
    6:30 pm – reception; 7:00 pm – lecture

    $10.00 for Latrobe Chapter members, student members (full time) free with ID, $18.00 for non-members.
  • New York Transformed: The Architecture of Cross & Cross

    New York | Dates: 03 Jun, 2014
    June 3, 2014 at 6:30pm

    Architect Peter Pennoyer and architectural historian Anne Walker, authors of New York Transformed (The Monacelli Press, 2014), will speak about two of the 20th century’s most important, yet largely forgotten, architects, brothers John and Eliot Cross, in a conversation moderated by Donald Albrecht. Cross & Cross’s work included such iconic buildings as the General Electric Building, Tiffany’s, and luxurious apartment buildings 720 Park Avenue and One Sutton Place South—these latter two in collaboration with Rosario Candela. Pennoyer and Walker, who will sign books, will also discuss the Cross brothers’ real estate ventures, including the development of Sutton Place.

    Co-sponsored by the Institute of Classical Art & Architecture and The Monacelli Press.

    Reservations recommended.
    Free for Museum members; $12 for students/seniors; $16 for general public.

  • Visualizing Venice: The City and the Lagoon

    Venice | Dates: 03 – 13 Jun, 2014
    Digital Visualization Workshop, June 3-13, 2014

    This course will teach a range of digital skills in 3D modeling, visualization, and mapping technologies to enable participants to engage historical questions with emerging digital tools. As in the previous editions of the workshop, the technologies will be taught through the use of a theme: in 2014 the focus will be on Venice and its islands. Participants will use the city and the lagoon as a “laboratory” through which to examine questions such as change over time and dynamic process in urban and rural environments, showing how man-made spaces respond to social and economic process and transformation. The aim of the workshop is to train scholars in how new technologies can be integrated with the study of historical and material culture. The workshop will focus on a range of visualization tools that can be used in a wide variety of research areas, in particular modeling change over time in urban space and the production of maps and low-cost photogrammetry.
