Architect Peter Eisenman will give a lecture titled "Reflections on Ground Zero" at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, in McCosh 10. The School of Architecture is sponsoring the event.
Eisenman is on one of the seven architectural teams that unveiled redevelopment plans for the World Trade Center site in December. His team, which included architects Richard Meier, Charles Gwathmey and Steven Holl, proposed building five towers arranged at a 90-degree angle and joined by three aerial bridges.
Well-known as an architectural theorist, Eisenman came to Princeton as a visiting professor in 1994. His public projects include the Wexner Center for the Visual Arts in Columbus, Ohio, and the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin.
This semester Eisenman is teaching an architecture design studio and the seminar "Selected Architects of the 20th Century." He has taught at several universities in the United States and Europe and has a professional practice in New York City.
