Gerald Frug, winner of the 2010-2011 Stirling Prize, will speak on the design of urban governance systems and its effects on the work of urbanists and architects.

Gerald Frug, Louis D. Brandeis Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, is a lawyer and legal scholar with particular interests in local government law and legal theory. Educated at the University of California at Berkeley and Harvard Law School, he worked as a Special Assistant to the Chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Washington, D.C., and as Health Services Administrator of the City of New York before he began teaching in 1974 at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He joined the Harvard faculty in 1981. He has written extensively on city and state relations, decentralization, and transportation in the United States and internationally. Professor Frug’s specialty is local government law, a subject he has taught for more than twenty-five years. He has published dozens of articles on the topic and is the author, among other works, of a casebook on Local Government Law (5th edition 2009, with David Barron and Richard T. Ford), City Bound: How States Stifle Urban Innovation (Cornell University Press 2008, with David Barron), and City Making: Building Communities without Building Walls (Princeton University Press 1999).

The James Stirling Memorial Lectures on the City is a competition established in 2003 to create a unique forum for the advancement of new critical perspectives on the role of urban design and urban architecture in the development of cities worldwide. It was conceived in homage to architect James Stirling, who believed that urban design is integral to the practice of architecture and a vital topic for public debate. The Stirling Lectures competition is a collaboration between the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) and the Cities Programme of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). The lecture has also been presented at the CCA and the LSE.

Organized by the Center for Architecture and the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
