January 12, 2006 —

Farajollah & Maryam Badie Arfaa Lecture Series in ArchitectureArchitect & historian Judith Sheine will offer the winter lecture in the 2005-2006 Farajollah & Maryam Badie Arfaa Lecture Series in Architecture on Thursday, January 12, 2006 at 6:30pm in the Mandell Theater (33rd & Chestnut Sts.) at Drexel University. Although his accomplishments were often slighted by the established architectural community in his lifetime, the work of Rudolph Schindler (1887-1953) is now revered by historians and designers far beyond Southern California where he practiced. One of the most thoughtful architects working in the era of early Modernism, Schindler's buildings married materials and context to create extraordinary spaces. Judith Sheine is a leading authority on Schindler, having written extensively about his work in Schindler: Composition and Construction (1993) and R. M. Schindler (2001). Sheine is also an award-winning architect, and is Chair and Professor in the Department of Architecture at the California State Polytechnic University in Pomona. This lecture is worth 2 AIA/CES Learning Units
