random thoughts on architecture history theory and criticism

buell dissertation colloquium 2013


i’ll be presenting my dissertation research at the buell dissertation colloquium, at columbia university, on april 6. my paper is titled “the machine in the pampas: buenos aires, 1943” and examines antonio bonet’s unbuilt project, casa amarilla, in the context of the large-scale urban works taking place in buenos aires and the military dictatorship installed in 1943. i argue casa amarilla attempted to resist the centralization of power by shifting formal characteristics of monumentality and centrality from the elites to the disenfranchised masses. the complete program is available here.
