Catesby Leigh - The Architecture of Monuments
Monumentality of a specifically anthropomorphic sort was developed to a high degree of refinement in ancient Greece, defining a classical, humanist tradition in public commemoration as well as institutional architecture that is now marginalized but not extinct. By way of illustration Leigh's lecture will include an overview of recent major memorials. He will argue that our postmodern culture seriously undervalues classical monumentality.
