Assembled in honor of Eduard F. Sekler, Professor Emeritus of the History of Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, Form, Modernism, and History is a fitting tribute to a man who as architect, historian, and preservationist has been instrumental in restoring history to a prominent place in contemporary architectural theory and practice.
