2019-09-04 Todd Gannon - Reynor Banham and the Paradoxes of High Tech
From Daniel Dugan on September 9th, 2019
Todd Gannon is a Professor of Architecture and Section Head at the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University. His work critically examines architecture of the early 20th century and of contemporary times, as he has produced several books and monographs on notable works and architects such as Zaha Hadid, Peter Eisenman, and Bernard Tschumi. Having lectured and served as juror at several institutions in the United States, Europe, and Asia, Gannon has received unwitting support and acclaim. For our Lecture Series, Gannon will be discussing his recent work, Reyner Banham and the Paradoxes of High Tech, which was published in 2017 by the Getty Research Institute. The Architect’s Magazine praises it as, “...an encyclopedia recounting of the growth of England’s architectural culture during Banham’s purview”, as it recalls the ideals of a key influence and critic of early modern architecture.
