Mark Linder, associate professor of architecture at Syracuse University, will lecture at the SU School of Architecture March 8 at 4:30 p.m. in the main auditorium of The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St. His lecture, “Literal is More,” is free and open to the public. For information on public parking at The Warehouse, call (315) 443-8238.
At SU, Linder teaches theory and design and is the chair of the graduate program. He received degrees in architecture from the University of Virginia (B.S.), Yale (M. Arch., M.E.D.) and Princeton (Ph. D). He taught previously at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the University of Illinois-Chicago, Rice University, the Rhode Island School of Design and the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He also maintains a design practice as a principal in CLear.
His book “Nothing Less than Literal: Architecture After Minimalism” (MIT, 2004) examines transdisciplinary exchanges between art and architectural criticism — and the resulting “confusion” of formalist techniques and discourses — in the debates surrounding minimal art.
Linder has lectured throughout the United States and has participated in numerous symposia and conferences, including a recent seminar at the Illinois Institute of Technology celebrating Mies van der Rohe and the renovated Crown Hall.
