Anthony Vidler – The Crisis of Modernism: James Stirling Out of the Archive

Lecture date: 2010-11-18

Following five years’ work in the James Stirling/Michael Wilford finds at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Anthony Vidler reviews the architecture of James Stirling (1924–1992) in the context of the ongoing crisis of modernism, between art and hi-tech, vernacular and monumental, and his relevance for today.

Anthony Vidler is Professor and Dean of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, The Cooper Union, New York.  His most recent publications are Histories of the Immediate Present (MIT Press 2009), and James Frazer Stirling (Yale, 2010).
