Carol Willis, architecture historian, Director of The Skyscraper Museum in New York City, and Adjunct Professor of Urban Studies at Columbia University, will discuss architecture featured in the DMA’s new exhibition Cult of the Machine: Precisionism and American Art. The exhibition examines American culture from the 1910s to the Second World War and reveals how the American love affair with new technology and mechanization shaped architecture, design, and the visual culture of the United States.

Carol Willis has researched, taught, and written about the history of the American city and its buildings. She is the author of Form Follows Finance: Skyscrapers and Skylines in New York and Chicago (Princeton Architectural Press), which received an AIA book award. In addition to numerous articles in books and scholarly journals, Ms. Willis has curated more than twenty exhibitions at The Skyscraper Museum and written introductions to numerous monographs and collections, including Skyscraper Rivals, New York Architecture, Manhattan Skyscrapers, and New York Deco. She appears regularly in television documentaries and radio broadcasts, including programs for The History Channel, PBS, A & E and BBC Television, NPR, and BBC World Service Radio.
