The Art Gallery of South Australia presents its Spring lecture, 'Architecture in the Museum: The Art of Advocacy', featuring Barry Bergdoll, Meyer Schapiro Professor of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University. Bergdoll has worked at New York's iconic Museum of Modern Art as the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design, developing multiple exhibitions exploring topical issues relevant to the architecture and design industries.

In 2011, Bergdoll ran an initiative in an attempt to resolve the mortgage-foreclosure crisis in the US. Five multidisciplinary teams including various urban environment specialists, engineers, architects, designers, landscape designers and ecologists came together to develop realistic solutions to the US housing situation.

Bergdoll will give insights into his current research focus, the process of working with diverse teams of professionals, and the importance of architecture and design as a part of the solution to pressing environmental concerns in a rapidly growing society.
