The debatable significance of Civil War Monuments was thrown in the spotlight again following recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia. This timely panel discussion will cover the subject of their meaning, the complex histories surrounding their realization, and current sociopolitical conditions that question the very existence of these monuments.
Check out what Beijing-based ZAO/standardarchitecture is currently working on in this presentation from founder Zhang Ke.
Spend Thursday evening with REX Director Alysen Hiller-Fiore, who will discuss The Perelman Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center, a project she is leading.
This exhibition is an ongoing photographic survey by architect/artist Rafael Herrin-Ferri, who observes identity, differentiation, and adaptation in the low-rise housing stock of Queens. The exhibition is open on Fridays from 2-6 p.m. The Architectural League will host a talk and reception with Herrin-Ferri and urban historian Joseph Heathcott on November 9.
