LIONEL H. PRIES: ARCHITECT, ARTIST, EDUCATOR: FROM ARTS & CRAFTS TO MODERN ARCHITECTURE
Seattle author, professor of architecture at the University of Washington and editor of Shaping Seattle Architecture: A Historical Guide to Architects, Jeffrey Karl Ochsner introduces his study of one of the most influential teachers of architecture and design at the U.W. Pries's highly artistic style of design helped shape the development of American Modernism in architecture and influenced Fred Bassetti, Victor Steinbrueck, and many other prominent twentieth-century architects.
This is an evening not only for architecture enthusiasts, but also for those wishing to broaden their knowledge of Northwest history and culture. (booksense)
