CENTERBROOK ARCHITECTS LECTURE SERIES PRESENTS MICHAEL CROSBIE, PH.D., FAIA WITH CESAR PELLI: HIS LIFE IN ARCHITECTURE

September 25 @ 7:00 pm

Free

The Centerbrook Architects Lecture Series presented by the Essex Library opens its thirteenth year with Essex resident, author Michael Crosbie. Crosbie will speak about his recent book, Cesar Pelli: Life In Architecture on  Friday, Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. on Zoom.

This new monograph celebrates the creative accomplishments of one of the world’s most influential architects and surveys his extraordinary body of work in terms of the AIA’s Gold Medalist’s design, architecture, and planning, tracing Pelli’s motivation as a leading designer and teacher, and the evolution of his work over the span of half a century. Pelli’s designs include projects around the globe – museums, theaters, offices, laboratories, airports, cultural centers, civic works, and master plans. Michael Crosbie will offer insights that delve into the design and construction of these landmarks from a practice that has thrived for nearly 40 years.

Michael J. Crosbie, Ph.D., FAIA, is Professor of Architecture at the University of Hartford. He studied architecture and received his Doctor of Philosophy degree from The Catholic University of America. Since 2001 he has been the editor-in-chief of Faith & Form: The Interfaith Journal on Religion, Art, and Architecture. Dr. Crosbie is the sole author, editor, or contributor to more than 70 books on architecture. The author of hundreds of articles on architecture, design, and practice, Dr. Crosbie is a frequent contributor to international print and online publications, and lectures on architecture throughout the United States and abroad.
