Martin Filler at the Center for Architecture

Martin Filler will present his new book Makers of Modern Architecture, Volume II, in conversation with Michael Z. Wise.

In this much-anticipated sequel to his critically acclaimed Makers of Modern Architecture (2007), longtime New York Review of Books contributor Martin Filler—“probably the best all-round architecture critic currently working in the United States,” according to the architectural journalist David Cohn—offers another penetrating series of concise but authoritative studies on leading exponents of the building art from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first century. Exemplifying his belief that an architect’s personality and character have a direct and profound bearing on this most public and social of art forms, Filler’s lively melding of biographical and aesthetic perspectives gives these accessible yet scrupulously researched interpretations a rare human immediacy.

Tickets are $10; free for members of the Association of Architects and students with valid ID. For more information, or to purchase a ticket, please visit the Center’s website.
