The Department of Architecture & Interiors of the Westphal College of Media Arts & Design at Drexel University are bringing the renowned Robert A.M. Stern to town.

Stern is a huge deal in the architecture world; he’s the dean and J.M. Hoppin professor of architecture at the Yale School of Architecture, and the founder and senior partner of Robert A.M. Stern Architects of New York City.

He’s also super relevant to Philadelphia: he designed the gorgeous Comcast Center, 10 Rittenhouse Square, a master plan for Philadelphia’s Navy Yard, the University of Pennsylvania’s McNeil Center for Early American Studies and Drexel’s new LeBow College of Business.

On Tuesday, January 17 at 6:30 p.m., Stern will be leading a talk called “Architecture and Place,” focusing on the power of architecture to improve our cities and campuses.

The lecture is free and open to the public, a chance to get up close and personal with a modern day marvel.
