The Collins/Kaufmann Forum hosts scholars to present recent works or works-in-progress on modern architecture. Coordinated by doctoral students, the series aims to survey trends in the field of history of architecture since 1750, with specific attention to current methodologies, approaches, and themes of research. The events connect a community of architectural scholars within and beyond Columbia University.
Our Fall 2022 series will take place in person. We will continue to observe current Columbia University Covid-19 event guidelines.
