This workshop in Columbus will celebrate Weese’s architecture and take place at the Indiana University Center for Art and Design (IUCA+D). Columbus provides the perfect venue for the workshop because this small Midwestern town contains a high concentration of Weese’s early works in close proximity to buildings by his teacher and mentor Eliel Saarinen and his son Eero. The formal workshop will convene with a keynote lecture by Robert Bruegmann. Additional presentations will follow, given by the director of IUCA+D, Kelly Wilson, Eric Sandweiss, urban and architectural historian,and several others. A plenary discussion panel will be moderated by Kelly Wilson. This panel will consist of the architects: Ben and Cynthia Weese, Marlon Blackwell, Frank Harmon, Julie Snow and Maryann Thompson. This symposium is intended to provide a critical review of initial research into the design analysis of Harry Weese’s architectural accomplishments.
