With the passing of Eduard Sekler in May 2017, Jorge Silvetti, the Nelson Robinson Jr. Professor of Architecture, will give the Eduard Sekler Memorial Lecture on November 7. Following the lecture, Silvetti and Toshiko Mori, the Robert P. Hubbard Professor in the Practice of Architecture will engage in a conversation. The lecture will reflect on the legacy of the late Eduard Sekler, who served as Harvard University’s Osgood Hooker Professor of Visual Art Emeritus and Professor of Architecture Emeritus at the Graduate School of Design, among other positions during his five decades at Harvard, before his passing at the age of 96 last spring. A beloved educator, scholar, mentor, and friend, Professor Sekler had a meaningful impact on the lives and careers of many of his former students and colleagues. In 2005, a group of former students set up a fellowship fund in his honor, and the first Eduard Sekler Fellow began at the GSD this fall. Interested alumni and friends may contribute to the Fund by visiting this page.

More information will be posted on the GSD’s website.
