      We are genuinely honored to have Dr. Whyte on the lecture series; he is
      the
      leading authority on German Modernism in the first half of the 20th
      century. His books include: BRUNO TAUT AND THE ARCHITECTURE OF ACTIVISM
      and WHAT IS MODERNISM? He also co-authored THREE ARCHITECTS FROM THE
      MASTER
      CLASS OF OTTO WAGNER: EMIL HOPPE, MARCEL HAMMERER, AND OTTO
      SCHONTHAL. Whyte has also edited MODERNISM AND THE SPIRIT OF THE CITY and
      CRYSTAL CHAIN LETTERS: ARCHITECTURAL FANTASIES BY BRUNO TAUT AND HIS
      CIRCLE
      and translated INDUSTRIEKULTUR. In addition to these larger projects,
      Whyte frequently presents on the materials and participants in
      architectural discourse during this period. He is said to be a dynamic
      speaker and an insightful scholar.

      and

      prominent television personality and edited a magazine of her own. The
      screening is free and open to the public.
