Edward Dimendberg (Irvine): New Public Spaces for Urban America. The Case of the New York High Line

14. Mai 2009, 16:00 Uhr
Edward Dimendberg is Associate Professor of Film and Media Studies, Visual Studies and German at University of California, Irvine. Furthermore he is Daimler Fellow at the American Academy in Berlin:

As buildings become "smarter" through the incorporation of digital technologies into architecture, urban public spaces have begun to assume new forms which challenge traditional distinctions among the city, visual art, and electronic media. At the forefront of these developments in the United States is the architecture studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R), whose recent New York High Line Park project will be analyzed by Prof. Dimendberg.

From 2005 to 2008, Professor Edward Dimendberg served as the first Multimedia Editor of the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, and he remains a frequent lecturer at schools of architecture, museums, cinema studies programs, and film festivals. His book Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity is a key contribution to scholarship on cinema and the city in the 1940s and 1950s. He is a General Editor of the Weimar and Now: German Cultural Criticism book series and of the Flashpoints electronic book series.
