Robert Gatje will present an illustrated talk on his new book Great Public Squares: An Architect’s Selection. Based on six years of research, visits and analysis Gatje has chosen 40 squares in Western Europe and America. Gatje hopes the book will inspire fellow-architects who will be designing public squares in the future as well as the citizens who use them.
Robert F. Gatje, FAIA, is an architect with 50 years experience in domestic and international practice. Formerly a partner of Marcel Breuer and of Richard Meier, Gatje served as president of the New York Chapter of the AIA from 1975 to 1976. Great Public Squares is published by W.W. Norten and will be available in April 2010.
