SWISS ARCHITECT SPEAKS

Dr. Siegfried Giedion Gives Charles Eliot Norton Lecture

Stressing the growth of public squares in the towns of the eighteenth century, Dr. Siegfried Giedion, Historian of Art and Architect, Zurich, spoke last night at Fogg Museum. His talk was the third of the Charles Eliot Norton Lectures on the subject of "Architectural Inheritance."

As examples of towns Dr. Giedion used Paris, Bath, Nancy, and Versailles. "The importance of Versailles doesn't lie in its royal splendor but in its clear approach to the problem of human living," he said.
