The event, part of the Stuckeman School of Lectures and Exhibits series, is free and open to the public, and will also be broadcast live by WPSU.
In “Recurrent Visions,” Brown will present cross-disciplinary explorations that exploit the possibilities of scale, media, and time in an investigation of three landmark projects for New York, Chicago, and Detroit.
