Skiing is all about freedom. Yet, paradoxically, the experience of skiing for most Americans is inextricably linked to architecture, for our journey down the mountain begins at the ski resort. The evolution from wilderness outpost to the massive, theme-oriented, multipurpose enclave today will be explored by Dr. Margaret Supplee Smith, Harold W. Tribble Professor Emerita of Art.
Following Dr. Smith's lecture, copies of her book American Ski Resort: Architecture, Style, Experience will be available for purchase and signing.
