Frank Furness: Architecture in the Age of the Great Machines


Frank Furness has remained a curiosity to architectural historians and critics, somewhere between an icon and an enigma, whose importance and impact have yet to be properly evaluated or appreciated. In this lecture that places Furness’ story within the industrial culture that supported his work, George Thomas, Ph.D., author and Harvard faculty member, presents Furness as a cutting-edge revolutionary who launched the beginnings of modern design, played a key part in its evolution, and whose strategies continue to affect the built world.


Registration for this event is now closed. Walk ups for the lecture are welcome!
