Modern Architecture in Mexico City

FULLY SUBSCRIBED

Beginning in the 1920s a new generation of architects in Mexico City created modern buildings intended to convey Mexico’s unique cultural character. By midcentury these architects and their students had rewritten the country’s architectural history and transformed the capital. In an illustrated lecture, Kathryn O’Rourke will present her new interpretation of architectural modernism in Mexico City.  Her research reveals the close links between design, architectural history, folk art, and social reform.

O’Rourke, associate professor of art history at Trinity University, received her B.A. in Architecture from Wellesley College and her M.A. and Ph.D. in the History of Art from the University of Pennsylvania. She serves as vice chair of the State Board of Review of the Texas Historical Commission and secretary of the Society of Architectural Historians. O’Rourke is the author of the highly regarded Modern Architecture in Mexico City: History, Representation, and the Shaping of a Capital (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2016).
