Architectural Explorations in Books - Uses of Architectural History in the Digital Age



Writer and Professor Suzanne Stephens leads a discussion with architects Thomas Kligerman and Joel Barkley of Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects. On the publication of Ike Kligerman Barkley: Houses, the topic will address the impact of the information age upon the process and product of a firm well-known for its engagement with the traditional canon of architectural history. These architects known primarily for their vividly referential domestic architecture will discuss how after coming of age in an era of the rediscovered eclecticism often found in the pages of books, the digital age has challenged and enriched their architecture's access to past and present. 

Architectural Explorations in Books is a new series of engaging programs delving into the critical role that architecture books play in the understanding of contemporary urban developments and structures. The events feature book presentations and discussions by world acclaimed architects, critics, curators, designers, historians, photographers and writers.
