Hear the lecture from author and scholar Karla Britton.

Karla Britton’s academic work focuses on the modern architect’s engagement with tradition in 20th century architecture and urbanism. Britton’s books include Auguste Perret (Phaidon, 2001); Hawaiian Modern (Yale, 2008; edited with Dean Sakamoto); and Constructing the Ineffable: Contemporary Sacred Architecture (Yale School of Architecture, 2011). Her current research addresses modern sacred architecture in the non-Western world.  Britton holds a Ph.D. from Harvard University.

This lecture is part of the Fall 2018 People and Places series organized by the University Libraries Center for Southwest Research & Special Collections. All events are free and open to the public. Lectures are scheduled each month featuring scholars from across the US.
