Archtober Event

On the occasion of the publication of Gordon Bunshaft and SOM: Building Corporate Modernism, author Nicholas Adams will speak about Bunshaft’s silence as an architect and its effect on his legacy. Bunshaft, a partner in the New York office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, gained a reputation as one of the prime shapers of Modern architecture within a firm that did not display his name. Adams will explore factors behind this major departure from the familiar star architect scenario.
