Lois Oppenheim, Ph.D. in Conversation with . . . Dennis Wedlick

The New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute continues its popular “Conversations with….” series and is pleased to present Dr. Lois Oppenheim in conversation with nationally-recognized architect Dennis Wedlick who will reflect on his creative process, career, and the influence of his mentor Philip Johnson.

Dennis Wedlick is the award-winning founder of Barlis Wedlick Architects and co-author, with Alan Barlis, of the forthcoming book Classic & Modern – Signature Styles.

Wedlick began his architectural career with a twelve-year apprenticeship to the master architect Philip Johnson. During his time in Johnson’s office, he focused on both residential work and urban planning projects. In 1992, Wedlick founded Dennis Wedlick Architect and, in 2012, the firm officially changed its name to Barlis Wedlick Architects. The award-winning firm continues as a full-service architecture, master planning, landscape and interior design firm based in Manhattan and Hudson, New York.

Sustainability has been an enduring theme in Wedlick’s work; concerns about the environment, preservation, and energy-efficiency are weighed at the outset of every project the firm undertakes. Most recently, Barlis Wedlick Architects has become expert in passive design and construction, today’s highest standard for high-performance architecture. In 2011, the firm completed the Hudson Passive Project, the first certified passive house in New York State and one of the most energy-efficient homes in the country.

Wedlick and his work have been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Architectural Digest, Interior Design, Elle Decor, Residential Architect and The Architect’s Newspaper. He is the author of four books: The Good Home (2001); Designing the Good Home (2004), Good House Parts (2003); and Good House Hunting: 20 Steps to Your Dream Home (2005).

Wedlick is a founding member of CORA, the Congress of Residential Architecture, a national trade organization dedicated to improving the field of residential architecture and educating the public. Wedlick has taught design and architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, Parsons School of Design and City College of New York.

Dr. Lois Oppenheim is Distinguished Scholar, Professor of French, and Chair of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Montclair State University where she teaches courses in both literature and applied psychoanalysis. She is also Scholar Associate Member of the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute and Honorary Member of the William Alanson White Society.

Dr. Oppenheim has authored or edited eleven books, the most recent being Imagination from Fantasy to Delusion (Routledge, 2012), A Curious Intimacy: Art and Neuro-Psychoanalysis (Routledge, 2005), and The Painted Word: Samuel Beckett’s Dialogue With Art (Univ. of Michigan Press, 2000).

She has been a Visiting Scholar at the Psychiatric Institute of the Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, on the Boards of The Philoctetes Center for the Multidisciplinary Study of Imagination and the UK Network for Modern Fiction Studies, and a past president of the international Samuel Beckett Society. Dr. Oppenheim continues as host of NYPSI’s popular “Conversations with…” series of discussions on creativity. She is co-creator of the documentary film on mental health stigma (currently in production) called The Madness Project.
