Assistant Professor, Steve Rugare, will be this Friday’s Lunch Lecturer. His topic will be the “Great Lakes Exposition: Architectural and Planning Questions”.

The Great Lakes Exposition of 1936-37 was one of the outstanding planning and design success stories in Cleveland’s history. It’s also one of the least-studied the expositions held in American cities during the New Deal era. In this progress report on his research, Steve Rugare will examine the fairs significance in the history of Cleveland’s lakefront and frame key questions about its relationship to other expositions and the development of modern architecture in the US. To conclude, he will look briefly at what would be required to stage a successful exposition in Cleveland today.

This event is free and open to the public.
