Paul Goldberger - Ballpark: Baseball in the American City — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Sunday, May 19, 2019 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Goldberger, one of our finest architecture critics, won a Pulitzer during his years at The New York Times, went on to write for The New Yorker, and is now a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. He follows his recent Why Architecture Matters with a wide-ranging survey of why and how ballparks matter. Taking us around the country to Wrigley Field, Fenway Park, Dodger Stadium, and more, Goldberger covers the evolution of the baseball park from the corrals of the 1800s to the stadiums of today, traces the nation’s larger socio-cultural shifts through changes in ballparks’ locations and seating arrangements, shows how TV has affected the design of the parks, and offers many intriguing facts about baseball, design, and some of the people involved with them.
