I had a great time at the Hirshhorn Museum on Oct. 2, leading a mini-tour focused on Brutalism, concrete, and color in recognition of World Architecture Day. Thanks to everyone who came out!

Last week, I gave a lecture at the District Architecture Center as part of D.C.’s new Architecture Month, after accepting the Sarah Booth Conroy Prize. The title was “The Overlooked Architectural Opportunities of Suburbia,” and it covered everything from Walter Gropius’ suburban experiments to New Urbanist New Towns to makeovers of strip malls. Here are slides for those who want to see ’em.

On March 16, I gave a talk for AIA Baltimore’s 2017 Migration lecture series. I shared the stage with Garrett Dash Nelson, a geographer at Dartmouth College known for his research on megaregions (which has produced some seriously cool maps). Garrett talked about commuting and megaregions, and then I talked about immigrants in contemporary suburbia, and the presentations complemented each other well. My slides are up on Slideshare if you want to take a look.
