On Wednesday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m., the Arts Council of Princeton presents the Goldberg Lecture in architecture featuring architect Shirley Blumberg. The lectures in architecture are held in memory of Bunny and David Goldberg.

A founding partner of KPMB Architects, Ms. Blumberg is an invested Member of the Order of Canada “for her contributions to architecture and for her commitment to creating spaces that foster a sense of community.” Her portfolio ranges from mixed-use developments to highly specialized cultural and academic institutions, many with a focus on revitalizing heritage contexts.

Ms. Blumberg’s local projects include 20 Washington Road for Princeton University as well as the new Campus Framework Plan at Princeton. She is the partner-in-charge of the Remai Modern Art Gallery of Saskatchewan, and the Ronald O. Perelman center for political science and economics at the University of Pennsylvania.

She is a member of the Toronto Community Housing Design Review Panel, and has served on design review panels for the Ontario College of Art and Design and the City of Toronto. She has been a guest critic and lecturer at universities across North America.

The Goldberg Lectures in Architecture are supported by a memorial fund with more than 250 contributors. The series features an annual lecture by a prominent architect, beginning in June 2008 with Paul Robeson Center designer Michael Graves. In 2009, the lecture featured J. Robert Hillier; Stan Allen in 2010; Harrison Fraker, Jr. in 2011; James Polshek in 2012; and in 2013, Alan Chimacoff, Max Hayden, MJ Sagan and Kevin Wilkes were in a panel discussion moderated by Tom Wright.

The lecture will take place in the Solley Theater at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon Street. Visit for more information.
