SPRING 2019

FEBRUARY

Black History Month Architecture Series: The Architecture of John W. Moutoussamy

John Moutoussamy (1922-1995) was a pioneering African-American architect in Chicago in the mid-twentieth century. Trained under Mies van der Rohe in the Modernist tradition, Moutoussamy broke numerous barriers to achieve a successful career from the 1950s-1980s. His most significant work, and the only major Loop building designed by a black architect, is the Johnson Publishing Building at 820 S. Michigan Avenue. 

Johnson Publishing was the preeminent publisher of magazines for the African-American market throughout the U.S., with titles such as Ebony and Jet

This lecture will focus on Moutoussamy's life and career, with an emphasis on his most famous design (now a Chicago landmark) and the significance of Johnson Publishing.
