Architect and Critic Robert Campbell
Tuesday, October 6 at 7 PM at 3S Artspace
Historic architecture and changing cityscapes will be the focus of architect and Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Robert Campbell’s special presentation in Portsmouth on Tuesday, October 6th at 3S Artspace, at 319 Vaughn Street. The event will start with a community social hour co-hosted by Manypenny Murphy Architecture at 6 p.m., followed by Campbell’s talk at 7 p.m.,
This event is the first of a series planned by PS21 through May 2016.
Campbell’s talk, “Architecture Is the Art of Making Places,” will include photos and illustrations from many times and places. “By looking at images from many times and places, we’ll try to identify what makes good and bad architecture,” says Campbell, who suggests that architectural principles transcend eras and locations.
Robert Campbell is a recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism for his work as architecture critic of the Boston Globe. A resident of Cambridge, he was a regular columnist for the magazine Architectural Record for many years and is the co-author, with photographer Peter Vanderwarker, of Cityscapes of Boston: An American City Through Time, which the Chicago Tribune says “belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who cares about the fate of the American city.”
Support for “Architecture Is the Art of Making Places” is provided by Lassel Architects and Manypenny Murphy Architecture. The PS21 series is presented in partnership with: Piscataqua Savings Bank, Seacoast Rotary Club of Portsmouth, and Coruway Film Institute. Media sponsors are Seacoast Media Group and The Sound.
The event is free and all are welcome.
