Ruth & Norman Moore Visiting Professor of Architecture Lecture: Cory Henry

Join us Monday, March 18, at 5:30 p.m., for a free public lecture with architect Cory Henry.

Henry founded the eponymous interdisciplinary design studio, Atelier Cory Henry, following 14 years working with renowned architects, including Michael Graves. The son of Jamaican immigrants and raised in The Bronx, Henry has maintained a commitment to addressing contemporary urban conditions through a combination of poetic design solutions and socially conscious ideals. He has developed a reputation as a contextually sensitive designer, with a strong dedication to generating spaces through collaborations, research, listening, and
understanding of cultural narratives, contextual conditions, and values.

Henry’s background has led to a cross-field approach to design through an integration of visual arts, architecture, and urban design. He has executed projects of various typologies and scales on every continent. Current projects include private residences, cultural center, education centers in rural areas of the global south, and multi-unit affordable housing. He is a 2024 MacDowell Fellow, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and has been recognized as an emerging force in the field, — “making strides to create a built environment that is more equitable and accessible for all” — by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board. Henry also won the National Emerging Architect category of St. Louis’ “On Olive” design competition. Henry’s dedication to practice and academia has resulted in a symbiotic relationship between the two. He is currently a visiting critic and professor at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, and twice awarded the University of Maryland’s Kea Distinguished Professorship in Architecture and Design. Henry has also taught design studios at the University of Pennsylvania, Syracuse University, the University of Southern California, and Penn State University, and is a design juror for several other renowned universities around the world.

This event is part of the Sam Fox School’s Public Lecture Series and is free and open to the public. The lecture will take place in Steinberg Hall.

Free parking is available in the East End Garage beginning at 5:00 p.m. Enter the garage from Forsyth Boulevard or Forest Park Parkway
