Keller Easterling will give the Dean’s Forum Lecture at the University of Virginia School of Architecture on Friday, Nov. 4. An architect, urbanist and writer, Easterling will talk about her latest book “Enduring Innocence: Global Architecture and its Political Masquerades,” in which she links globalization and architecture. She explores the global urban landscape that exists outside normal constituencies and jurisdictions — resorts, information technology campuses, retail chains, golf courses, ports and other hybrid spaces that are permeated with myths, desires and symbolic capital.
Easterling also is the author of “Organization Space: Landscapes, Highways and Houses in America”; “Call It Home,” a laser disc history of suburbia; and “American Town Plans.” She has recently completed two research installations on the Web: Wildcards: a Game of Orgman and Highline: Plotting NYC.
Easterling’s work has been widely published in journals and been exhibited at numerous museums around the country. She has received Graham Foundation Grants, NEA Fellowships, MacDowell Fellowships, Whitney Humanities Center Grants, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship and a Design Trust for Public Space Fellowship.
