American Ski Resort: Architecture, Style, Experience

ski.bookjacketThe Z. Smith Reynolds Library is hosting a lecture and book signing for Margaret Supplee Smith, professor emerita of art, on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 4 p.m. in the library’s auditorium (Room 404). Smith will discuss her book “American Ski Resort: Architecture, Style, Experience” (2013, University of Oklahoma Press).

Skiing is all about freedom. Yet, paradoxically, the experience of skiing for most Americans is inextricably linked to architecture, for our journey down the mountain begins at the ski resort. The evolution from wilderness outpost to the massive, theme-oriented, multipurpose enclave today will be explored. Following the lecture, copies of Smith’s book will be available for purchase.

Former professor will have book signing

Peggy SmithFormer professor Margaret Supplee “Peggy” Smith has written a new book, “American Ski Resort: Architecture, Style, Experience,” that meticulously traces the architectural evolution of ski resorts from the 1930s to the 1990s. She presents a compelling case that ski resorts are a distinctly American type of architecture and one worthy of study.

Smith, who retired as Harold W. Tribble Professor of Art in 2011 after 32 years at Wake Forest, will have a book signing on Sunday, Oct. 27, from 1-3 p.m., at Ski and Tennis Station in Winston-Salem. If you miss her there, she’ll also be signing books on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 2–4 p.m., at Barnes & Noble, also in Winston-Salem.
