Please Join the Miami Beach Urban Studios for Alastair Gordon’s “Discovery.2”


Join the College of Architecture + The Arts at the Miami Beach Urban Studios at 6:30 on Tuesday, October 14th for an introductory lecture by one of the Dean’s Distinguished Fellows, Alastair Gordon. Alastair will discuss who he is as a critic, author, curator and publisher with a focus on the creative process and diminishing arts of discovery, including a response to Karl Ove Knausgaard’s recent comment “the physical world is gone.”

Mr. Gordon is an author, curator, critic, filmmaker, publisher, and public speaker. He is the Co-Founder and Editorial Director of Gordon de Vries Studio, Multimedia Publishing Imprint, a contributing editor for the Architecture/Design section of The Wall Street Journal Magazine, the Founder and Director of “Wall to Wall” – an interactive website and blog about the built environment – and the Presidential Counselor of the National WWII Museum in New Orleans. He has also worked as a contributing editor for The New York Times, for House & Garden, and for Atelier Magazine.

Mr. Gordon has exhibited his own artwork at institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Aidekman Arts Center at Tufts University, and the Wolfsonian-FIU, and has curated exhibitions at the SCAD Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, Princeton University, and the National AIA Museum in Washington, D.C. He is known for his highly-praised literature, such as Spaced Out: Radical Environments of the Psychedelic Sixties and Naked Airport: A Cultural History of the World’s Most Revolutionary Structure. Mr. Gordon has lectured about architecture/design and the arts at Columbia University, the AIA Convention, the Museum of Modern Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
