The school of Architecture and Planning of the Catholic University of America is pleased to present the Third Edition of our George Marcou Memorial Lecture honoring late Professor Emeritus George Marcou. This year we are proud to welcome architect Craig Dykers, co-founder of the renowned international firm Snøhetta. Since their dramatic debut with the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt, Craig has been an instrumental force in a firm that has produced award winning architecture across the world stage. Currently heading both the construction of the 9/11 Memorial Museum Pavilion at the World Trade Center and the new Times Square Reconstruction project in New York City, Craig Dykers is also overseeing numerous other Snøhetta projects throughout North America. His work has led to numerous international awards and recognitions including the Mies van der Rohe European Union Prize for Architecture, the World Architecture Award, and the Aga Kahn Award for Architecture, among many others. The lecture will start at 6 pm. on Wednesday, October 9th, 2013 at the Koubek Auditorium in the Crough Center for Architectural Studies, The Catholic University of America, 620 Michigan Ave., N.E. Washington D.C. All are welcomed.
