We are proud to present Adrienne Brown, Associate Professor, University of Chicago. She will discuss her work, The Black Skyscraper: Architecture and the Perception of Race, which recovers the skyscraper’s drastic effects not only on the shape of the city but the racial sensorium of its residents. She will also discuss her work that charts the impact of the U.S.’s move to mass homeownership in 20th century on how Americans experienced residential space as a social, spatial, and, most significantly, a racial unit.
