In celebrating Reyner Banham's 99th birthday and the 20th anniversary of Banham Fellowship at the University at Buffalo, “20 Years, 21 Banham Fellows” is a symposium organized around themes explored in Banham’s experimental criticism.

The symposium includes presentations and panel discussions by the School’s Banham Fellows – from 2000 to present – to both reflect and speculate on the fellowship as alternative forms of pedagogy and practice, through which design strategies, historical critiques, and disciplinary discourse are further problematized, enmeshed, and illuminated. Panel moderators are UB Department of Architecture former Chairs Kent Kleinman, Mehrdad Hadighi, and Omar Khan, with UB faculty Brian Carter, Dennis Maher, and Hadas Steiner. The event is organized and hosted by Zherui Wang (BF 2020-21), Mustafa Faruki (BF 2017-18), and Joyce Hwang.
