Things have come back to full swing now that we're (already!) halfway through the first month of 2017. As always, New York City is abuzz with creative folks expanding the possibilities of how architectural design and practice can be reinterpreted, bringing attention to what in the urban environment is constantly overlooked. Planning for another week in the Big Apple? Bustler has compiled a snappy list of noteworthy happenings around town that are worth checking out.
Check back regularly at the start of the week to stay up to date. Have a look at the Bustler team's latest selection of New York City events.
Current Work: Glenn Murcutt | January 17, recommended by Justine Testado
In this conversation with Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, Pritzker laureate Glenn Murcutt will talk about his collaborative design process with architect Hakan Elevli on the Australian Islamic Centre, which is considered to be one of Australia's largest mosques. The discussion will take place at The Cooper Union's Great Hall.
Salon Series: Urban Data Operations | January 18, recommended by Justine Testado
BLDGBLOG's Geoff Manaugh and Nicholas de Monchaux will have a discussion revolving around “whether systems of information and infrastructure can serve those beyond their builders”, based on Nicholas de Monchaux's latest publication, “Local Code: 3,659 Proposals About Data, Design, and the Nature of Cities”. His book presents a series of designs for networked micro-interventions in US cities.
Insecurities: Tracing Displacement and Shelter | Open now until January 22, recommended by Alexander Walter
With the impending Trump regime and a growing hostility towards refugees in the UK and Europe overall, the need for an open discussion about displacement and various other symptoms of the global refugee crisis is as urgent as ever before. MoMA's current exhibition Insecurities: Tracing Displacement and Shelter takes a closer look but unfortunately already draws to a close this Sunday. Catch one last related panel tomorrow: On Permanence in Transit presents a conversation between writer Ben Rawlence and curator Sean Anderson. (Event will be live-streamed as well.)
Pipilotti Rist: Open my Glade (Flatten) | Open now until February 1, recommended by Alexander Walter
New Yorkers are in for a special treat this month: Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by the Times Square Advertising Coalition and Times Square Arts, presents iconic video artist Pipilotti Rist with her piece Open my Glade (Flatten) on multiple screens around the plaza every night from 11:57 p.m. to midnight.
