Reanimating Ludwig Hilberseimer – Scott Colman

April 1 at 6:00 pm

Scott Colman of Rice University will lecture on his recent book Ludwig Hilberseimer: Reanimating Architecture and the City, the first synthetic account of Hilberseimer in English, providing a contextual account of Hilberseimer’s works which have until now been subject to fragmentary or highly specialized interpretations. The German-American architect, art critic, and urban planner Ludwig Hilberseimer was central to avant-garde art and architecture in the Weimar Republic, an important Bauhaus teacher, and a long-standing collaborator of leading modern architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Despite being internationally known for his work on Lafayette Park in Detroit, Hilberseimer’s legacy as a whole has been obscured in the history of modern architecture. This lecture is part of the Architecture Program’s Winter 2024 series, “Building Culture.”
