2020 A+C Festival | John Carl Warnecke: In the Shadow of the Eternal Flame
John Carl Warnecke (1919 - 2010) designed one the most visited American Presidential monuments, JFK’s Eternal Flame in Arlington, VA.
John Carl Warnecke (1919 - 2010) designed one the most visited American Presidential monuments, John F. Kennedy’s Eternal Flame in Arlington National Cemetery. Given our cultural fascination with the Kennedy clan, how is it that the architect selected to honor Kennedy’s memory is himself not more prevalent in our architectural memory? Why has there not yet been a monograph dedicated to Warnecke’s life and work?
Join us for this fascinating presentation by Bridget Maley, architectural historian and writer, founder of architecture + history, llc, who will examine how Warnecke’s work reveals a deeply contextual approach which began early and continued throughout his career.REGISTER HERE
