Architect Alexander Gorlin Lecture at the Skirball

Explore the influence of Kabbalah on modern design with noted architect, design critic, and author Alexander Gorlin, whose new book, Kabbalah in Art and Architecture, reinterprets art and architecture through the lens of Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism.

The book explores how the Kabbalistic idea of creation, as expressed through light, space and geometry, has left its mark on civilization, and how the imagery is represented in contemporary art, sculpture, and architecture by innovators such as Moshe Safdie, Louis Kahn, and Yayoi Kusama.

Alexander Gorlin is a noted architect, design critic, author, and scholar. His internationally recognized firm, Alexander Gorlin Architects, specializes in design for religious institutions; high-end residential and affordable housing for the homeless; and master planning. The firm has received a number of Design Excellence awards from the American Institute of Architects, and was selected by Architectural Digest for its prestigious AD100 designation. Gorlin has taught at the Yale School of Architecture and was a Rome Prize Fellow at the American Academy in Rome.
