Download: audio, small video, or original.

Celebrating the reopening of Northrop Hall and the Centennial of the School of Architecture, the exhibition 100 Years of Student Drawings displays drawings from the Beaux-Arts era through the digital age, showing a range of building types, media, and individual expression, including two drawings by two “Monuments Men,” Ralph Warner Hammett and Walter John Huchthausen.

Panelists will include Jane Hession, exhibit curator, reflecting on its impetus, research, and implementation, John Cuningham, FAIA, reflecting on his experience as a student and the role his drawing training has played in his work, and Katherine Solomonson, U of M professor, reflecting on the exhibit and what it tells us about the last 100 years of architecture.

This discussion is cosponsored with Northrop Presents, the University Honors Program, and the College of Design’s Travelers Innovation Lab.
