Ballpark, by Paul Goldberger: Discussion and Book Signing
June 1, 2019 • 5:00 pm PDT
Can the ballparks of America’s ‘favorite pastime’ tell the stories of American cities and culture? In his new book, Ballpark, architecture critic Paul Goldberger explores the connection between ballgame venues and the cities they are in, and reveals the societal shifts reflected by nearly two centuries of changing locations and architecture. Throughout the book, Goldberger shows the ways in which baseball’s history is concurrent with our cultural history: the rise of urban parks and public transportation; the development of new building materials; and the evolution of engineering and design skills. Join Goldberg and Archinect founder and director Paul Petrunia this Friday, in conversation about the book. Book signing to follow.
