Arthur Brown, Jr: Progressive Classicist


Location: 104 Bond Hall

Dr. Jeffrey Tilman, assistant professor at the School of Architecture and Interior Design at the University of Cincinnati, will give a lecture based on the research for his new book, Arthur Brown, Jr.: Progressive Classicist. Dr. Tilman is a professor of architectural history, design, and historic preservation. His research and writings focus on the history of American Architecture between the Civil War and World War II. He recently published the the book Arthur Brown, Jr.: Progressive Classicist, a monograph on the classically-oriented architect of San Francisco City Hall and part of the Federal Triangle in Washington. Tilman's interest in Arthur Brown and historic preservation is a result of his conviction that preservation is a part of architectural practice, and that no architecture is successful unless it addresses its pre-existing social, political, physical, and historical context.
