The Architectural League's latest Housing Brass Tacks discussion features Urban Homesteading Assistance Board Executive Director Andrew Reicher. Reicher “will detail the advantages of limited-equity tenure, UHAB’s strategies for assisting residents in developing and managing affordable co-ops, and how the organization’s work has evolved to include tenant organizing and policy advocacy.”
Curated by Claude Armstrong and Donna Cohen, who worked as artist Donald Judd's assistants, “Obdurate Space” is the first exhibition to focus on Judd's built and unbuilt architectural projects. “The exhibition reveals how drawing and building cultures impacted his art and suggests how his work has influenced contemporary architecture.”
Here's your chance to hear a public lecture from Deborah Berke, who will share what her firm has been working on as of late.
Independent critic Mimi Zeiger will present her approaches in exploring how collaboration, structure, research, and critique shape exhibition-making, as seen in projects like the upcoming 2018 U.S. Pavilion for the Venice Architecture Biennale, the “Tu Casa es mi Casa” exhibition, and more.
Catch a screening of Diana Agrest's film, “The Making of an Avant-Garde: The Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies 1967-1984”, which documents the founding and influence of the Institute as told through interviews with today's most renowned architects.
Whether you're a longtime resident or a newcomer, all New Yorkers are welcome to participate in this open forum to discuss what a Welcome to NYC center could be. Questions to think about: “What would have been a great resource to have when you first arrived in New York? What did you discover years later that you wish you had know when you first moved to the city?”. Space is limited so be sure to RSVP.
