Description

Diana Agrest, Professor of Architecture at the Cooper Union and principal of Agrest and Gandelsonas Architects, presents a screening of her 2013 documentary on the lesser-known history of the Institute of Architecture and Urban Studies (IAUS). The organization was formed in 1967 New York by a group of young architects at a time of questioning, when student revolts were happening around the world, and unknowingly became the center for the production of the International Avant Garde. Among the group's most active participants were founder and director of IAUS Peter Eisenman, Diana Agrest, Kenneth Frampton, Mario Gandelsonas, Anthony Vidler, Richard Meier, Rem Koolhaas, Deborah Berke, Frank Gehry, and Aldo Rossi. After the film screening, Nicholas de Monchaux (UC Berkeley), Sylvia Lavin (UCLA), and Jonathan Massey (CCA) will join Agrest in a panel discussion on the legacy of IAUS.
