Today’s preoccupation with contemporary architecture is reflected in the frequent media attention given to buildings designed by superstar architects such as Frank Gehry, Norman Foster and Rem Koolhaas.

In earlier ages men erected cathedrals, palaces, government buildings and monuments to represent their beliefs and to express the essentials of their culture. These historic periods that gave birth to the architectural styles can be related to human psychological types.

Using extensive slides, this presentation will examine the historic architectural styles of Western civilization and relate them to the nine Enneagram types, with discussion of the social and historical currents that produced them.

Buildings designed by Tim Vreeland include skyscrapers, university science laboratories and performance complexes. Associated early in his career with Louis Kahn’s firm in Philadelphia, he was Head of the Architecture Program at UCLA and served on its faculty for thirty years. He is a graduate of the Yale School of Architecture.
