We are pleased to share the next rebroadcast of this year’s The Vignelli Center for Design Studies’ Design Conversations Lecture Series with Milton S.F. Curry, dean and professor at the University of Southern California’s School of Architecture. Curry’s lecture, “Paul R. Williams and the Legacy of Black Aesthetics,” was originally broadcast live on Zoom to an RIT-only audience at 7PM on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2020.
Curry is not only an accomplished academic leader, he is also the author of influential essays and articles related to architecture, urbanism, race and cultural theory. A firm believer in public discourse on architecture and culture, he has been widely published and cited in Deem Journal, Architect’s Newspaper, Huffington Post, Architectural Record and more. Prior to establishing his own design practice, MiltonCurry ProjectStudio, Curry worked at the offices of KPF Architects.
