Architecture lover to discuss his book on architect’s gravesites

An architecture lover who has written a book about the gravesites of important American architects will speak about that work in a free presentation at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Columbus Area Visitors Center, 506 Fifth St.

Henry Kuehn, a volunteer docent for the visitors center and a resident of Louisville, will discuss “Architects’ Gravesites: A Serendipitous Guide.” The book, which included a decade of research, has been described by art historian Barry Bergdoll as “a delightful journey into the last bids for memory granted to designers whose work has transformed the face of American cities.”

Kuehn was a leading executive in the medical products industry before his retirement and has had a long-standing interest and involvement in architecture. He has served on the executive committee of the Society of Architectural Historians.

Copies of the book are available for purchase in the gift shop, and the author will be available for signing after his talk. Refreshments will be served.
