Peter Eisenman: Towards a Celebration

Peter Eisenman: Towards a Celebration


This symposium at the Yale School of Architecture is convened by Surry Schlabs BA ‘99 M.Arch ‘03 Ph.D ‘17 in celebration of Peter Eisenman’s long and illustrious career as an architect, thinker, author, and educator, a figure whose innovative work as a designer and tireless dedication as a teacher over the past half-century have helped form—and ever re-form—the field of architecture as we know it today. The event brings together a distinguished group of architects and historians, teachers and students, friends and colleagues, to frame and explore Eisenman’s many extraordinary contributions to modern architectural discourse, and to consider his legacy here at the Yale School of Architecture.
