Post-Modernist Publishing of Architecture


Post-Modernist Publishing of Architecture in the Late 1970s: A Special Symposium Hosted by Professor Mark Mack

Join us for a special symposium hosted by Professor Mark Mack on Monday, March 18 from 6-8:30 PM. This symposium will revisit a moment of awakening in California in architectural publishing in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Speakers will discuss their intimate involvement in the development of iconic publications during this period and contrast the analog publishing of architectural thought then to the digital state of architectural broadcasting now. The event celebrates publishing as a catalyst for a critical yet open-minded and inclusive architectural discourse.
