Stanley Mathews, HWS professor of art and architecture, was part of a symposium on Wednesday, Sept. 21, discussing the contributions of British architect Cedric Price (1934-2003) to contemporary architecture.
The event was moderated by Mark Wigley, Dean of the Graduate School of Architecture at Columbia University; and held at Columbia's Avery Hall to a standing-room crowd. Mathews holds a doctorate from Columbia's Graduate School of Architecture.
Other panelists included internationally known architects Juan Herreros, Bernard Tschumi and Michael Webb.
Mathews' pioneering doctoral work helped to establish Price as a major contributor to contemporary architectural discourse.
In addition to his recent lectures and symposia on Price's work, Mathews has written four articles on Price, and has contracted with London's Black Dog Publishing Ltd. to produce the first authoritative monograph on Price, due to appear next fall.
