Professor of the History of Art and Architecture

From Ornament to Object, one of four new books authored in the past year by Alina Payne, identifies a shift of interest from ornament to objects (increasingly understood as the DNA of culture), and argues for a new understanding of the genealogy of architectural modernism. The Telescope and the Compass, examines the relationship between architecture and science in the age of Galileo, while Teofilo Gallaccini, Writings presents the inedited manuscripts of an early modern Italian scientist and art critic.
