The John Dinkeloo Memorial Lecture was established to recognize John Dinkeloo's extraordinary contributions to architecture, to honor his distinguished professional work and to pay tribute to this highly respected alumnus of the Architecture Program at the University of Michigan. This annual lecture recognizes and commemorates excellence in architectural design, and celebrates those designers whose work combines design excellence with structural ingenuity.
