This presentation of the life and work of the architect Stephen Paraskevopoulos, professor at the School of Architecture at the University of Michigan from 1954 to 1976 documents his multifaceted work as a teacher, researcher, inventor and visionary.
His interest in international development, in the optimal use of modern technological means and the need for research for the industrial production of new building materials and methods, especially plastics, led him to pioneering applications in Architecture and Urban Planning.
