Abstract: This video is a highly personal account of Eisenman's life and work told by alumnus Peter Eisenman'54, created in celebration of his 50th Cornell Reunion. Vintage pictures from Eisenman's years at and right after Cornell, as well as recent video taken of Professor Eisenman teaching at Yale, overlay the narration by Eisenman. Brief comments by nine of his well-known colleagues and friends in the architectural field, including Cornell architect and friend Richard Meier'56, are interspersed throughout the riveting story he shares about his Cornell years, the years following Cornell, and his current work as head of his NYC firm, Eisenman Architects.
