How Architecture Works, a Lecture by Witold Rybczynski
Rybczynski, who was awarded the Vincent Scully Prize for his architectural writing, offers a humanists toolkit for understanding our built environment and seeing it afresh. Architecture, if it is any good, speaks to all of us, he writes.
Witold Rybczynski has written about architecture for The New Yorker, The Atlantic, the New York Times, and Slate. Among his award-winning books are Home, The Most Beautiful House in the World, and A Clearing in the Distance, which won the Anthony J. Lukas Prize. He lives with his wife in Philadelphia, where he is Emeritus Professor of Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. How Architecture Works is his eighteenth book. www.witoldrybczynski.com
