Renowned architect to deliver Eubanks Distinguished Lecture

Joan Blumenfeld

The William R. Eubanks Distinguished Lecture Series at the University of Memphis is designed to give Department of Architecture students access to some of the nation’s best designers and architects.

This year’s lecture (“Designing for Life; A Love Story”) is Thursday night at the Fogelman Executive Conference Center and features Joan Blumenfeld, a design principal and former Global Design Director for Interiors at Perkins+Will, a national design and architecture firm. The event begins with a 6 p.m. reception, with the lecture following at 6:30 p.m. at the Fogelman Executive Conference Center Atrium and Room 123. It is free and open to the public.

Take a look at this video primer to whet your whistle for Thursday’s lecture.

Blumenfeld’s work has been featured in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, Contract Magazine, Architectural Record, Metropolis, and other publications and has won more than 40 design awards in the past five years. Her projects include the New York University, Leonard N. Stern School of Business, the New York City Police Academy, the University at Albany, SUNY, School of Business Building (pictured above), and many others.

The Department of Architecture will also announce Thursday the recipient of the 2019 James Weaver Memorial Scholarship, another Eubanks endowment.  The 2018 recipient was Jaimie Monger.
