Susan G. Solomon will join us for a talk on Thursday, March 31st, 2011. A celebrated architectural historian, Dr. Solomon received her PhD from UPenn and is the director of her own consulting firm, out of Princeton NJ: Curatorial Resources & Research (www.curatorialresources.com) where she advises architects, playground patrons and synagogue building committees in their endeavors for meaningful spaces.
With two titles directly on Louis I. Kahn, Dr. Solomon has become renown for her evaluations of Jewish Architecture and the evolution of synagogue design from 1955-1970. The author of Louis I. Kahn’s Trenton Jewish Community Center, Louis I. Kahn’s Jewish Architecture: Mikveh Israel and the Midcentury Synagogue, Dr. Solomon has established herself as an authority on Kahn by situating him within less staid typological contexts and allowing for a wider analysis of modernism in general.
Susan’s talk will evaluate select projects of Kahn’s career in the context of Jewish Architecture. The doors will open at 6:15, and introductions will begin at 6:45. Out of respect for our speaker, no late arrivals will be admitted past 7pm. Refreshments and light discussion will follow the Salon, and a limited number of copies of both titles will be available for dedication.
