The Triple Reform: Trialogue 1

Location: The University Club of Chicago, 76 East Monroe Street, Chicago, IL

Postcard Edit

The University of Notre Dame School of Architecture is pleased to present an academic event titled The Three Reforms. Trialogue I.. This unprecedented conference will bring together representatives of three general designations: Modern Traditional Architecture; Context–Collision–Collage; and New Urbanism.  These groups of architects have, over the past 40 years, elaborated comprehensive reforms to the ways in which architecture is thought, practiced, and taught. They have also been intellectual allies in the worldwide effort to reconstruct the architecture of the city and are therefore best placed to explain the essence of their work, narrate its evolution over the years, and speculate on its impact in the near future.
