Title: The Stadium in Conflict: Soccer Wars, Detention Camps, and Urbanicide
Author: Flowers, Benjamin
Description: Presented on January 26, 2012 from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon in the Georgia Tech Architecture Library. Associate Professor Benjamin Flowers joined the faculty of architecture in 2005. His work examines architecture as a form of social activity situated within the intersecting spheres of politics, culture, and economy. In other words, his work focuses on the ways buildings are constructed, the ends to which they are used, and the nature of public reaction to them. His research has attracted recognition and funding from Columbia University’s Buell Center for Architecture, Cornell University’s John Nolen Fellowship, the Society of Architectural Historians, and the Hagley Museum and Library. His recent publications include Skyscraper: The Politics and Power of Building New York City in the Twentieth Century (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2009), which was named a 2010 Outstanding Academic Title in Architecture by Choice Magazine. In 2008 Flowers was awarded the Outstanding Teacher Award from the College of Architecture. Flowers received his PhD from the University of Minnesota and his BA from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. He grew up in Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, Bulgaria, Romania, and Washington, DC.
