Moscow x Detroit Fall 2019 Symposium

October 11, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - October 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

Moscow x Detroit: Transnational Modernity in the Built Environment will bring together distinguished historians of art, architecture, urbanism, and social history, to consider a critical moment in twentieth-century history, one that branches outward from the late 1920s to the later industrialization of the US and the USSR, affecting culture and the built environment for decades after. The symposium will focus on infrastructure development, and the impact of built environments (factories, housing, green zones) on cities built to serve industry.
