Charles E. “Chick” Herbert Lecture in Architecture

Martino Stierli

 

Martino Stierli is the Museum of Modern Art’s chief curator of architecture and design, a role he assumed in March 2015. Stierli oversees the wide-ranging program of special exhibitions, installations, and acquisitions of the MoMA Department of Architecture and Design.

He will discuss the curatorial concept as well as the organization of The Project of Independence: Architectures of Decolonization in South Asia, 1947-1985, the recent exhibition on modern architecture on the Indian Subcontinent in the post-Independence era. At the center of his presentation is the question how architecture and architects contributed to giving shape to a bold societal vision of progress.

About the Herbert Lecture
The Charles E. “Chick” Herbert Lecture was established in 2010 in memory of 1951 Iowa State architectural engineering graduate Chick Herbert, FAIA (1925-2010), the founding principal of Herbert Lewis Kruse Blunck Architecture in Des Moines and recipient of the 2007 Distinguished Alumni Award, the highest honor given to Iowa State alumni by the ISU Alumni Association.
