A Conversation About Architectural Legacy: Bartholomew Voorsanger, Dell Upton and Victoria Young
Panel and Reception for "Preserving the Present: The Voorsanger Architects Digital Archive at the University of St. Thomas"
Date & Time:
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
O'Shaughnessy Educational Center Auditorium and The Department of Art History Gallery, O'Shaughnessy Educational Center
This spring we formally launch the Voorsanger Architects Archive with an exhibition in the Department of Art History Gallery. To better understand the process of creating an archive, we will bring together the principal and founder of the firm, Bartholomew Voorsanger, with architectural historians Dell Upton of the University of California at Los Angeles and Victoria Young of St. Thomas, to consider how we are preserving the importance of Voorsanger Architects’ work in the history of architecture worldwide.
In August 2015, the University of St. Thomas Department of Art History and Bartholomew Voorsanger, founder and principal of Voorsanger Architects PC, entered into an agreement to create an archive of selected projects by the New York City-based firm. The archive will consist not only of born-digital material in an online database, a website, oral histories, but also physical objects including models, photographs, publications, and sketchbooks.
The panel will begin at 6 PM, with a reception to follow.
