Paolo Scrivano, Assistant Professor in the Department of History of Art & Architecture, will discuss his new book from Ashgate Press in which he takes up the question of transatlantic relations in architecture. By reconsidering the means and effects of the dialogue that unfolded between the two sides of the Atlantic during the postwar years, Scrivano analyzes how cultural and formal models were developed in one context and then modified when transferred to a new one as well as the fortune of this cultural exchange in terms of circulation, amplification, and simplification.

Professor Scrivano joined Boston University after having taught at the Politecnico di Milano and at the University of Toronto. He graduated in Architectural History from the Politecnico di Torino and, from the same university, received a PhD in History of Architecture and Town-Planning.

Open to faculty + staff, graduate students, and visiting researchers. We welcome participants from other universities. RSVP to eamrien@bu.edu by March 24.
