Campanella Visits City of Perm, Russia
Earlier this fall, Thomas J. Campanella, associate professor in CRP, was invited by the U.S. Consulate in Yekaterinburg, Russia, to advise officials in the city of Perm on urban design and preservation issues. While there, the local public radio station, Moscow Echo 91.2, interviewed him during their weekly program on architecture and urbanism, titled The District Quarter.
Campanella also had an article published in June issue of the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, titled "Playground of the Century: A Political and Design History of New York City's Greatest Unbuilt Park;" and delivered the opening keynote address at a October symposium on Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., in Washington, DC, in November. The event was organized by the National Association of Olmsted Parks and held at the National Building Museum.
