This month, lunchtime on Wednesdays is all about architecture. From European masterpieces to the prehistoric Stonehenge to today’s superstructures, you can learn about antiquity, modern architectural marvels and everything in between.

Join Dr. Janetta Rebold Benton every Wednesday in February from 12:15-1:15 P.M. at Pace University’s Schimmel Center, as she discusses architectural masterpieces.

During the first three weeks, Dr. Benton will focus on the ancient wonders and modern marvels of Italy, France and England.  The fourth lecture, aptly named “Extreme Architecture,” reviews the structures of the world that transcend singular geographic significance and the strides taken to achieve contemporary innovation.  A luncheon after each lecture will feature foods from the country discussed that day.

A definite must for history and architecture buffs everywhere!
