Event description: 
Esther da Costa Meyer is Professor emerita in the Department of Art and Archaeology, Princeton University, and Visiting Professor at the Yale School of Architecture. She has worked on both modern and contemporary architecture, on the architectural practices of the old colonial powers, particularly France. Her book Dividing Paris: Urban Renewal and Social Inequality, 1852-1870 (Princeton University Press) came out in February 2022. Her recent curatorial work, at the Jewish Museum in New York, includes Pierre Chareau: Modern Architecture and Design (2016) and The Sassoons (2023), this last co-curated with Claudia Nahson. Da Costa Meyer’s graduate seminars at the Yale School of Architecture have focused on the Anthropocene and, for the past three years, the architecture of refugee camps.
