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 events around town that are worth checking out. Check back regularly to stay up to date.
This week's recommendations start off with a conversation about Jane Jacobs' evolving legacy between Curbed architecture critic Alexandra Lange and Samuel Zipp and Nathan Storring. Esteemed artist Anish Kapoor and Atelier Bow-Wow co-founders Momoyo Kaijima and Yoshiharu Tsukamoto will also participate in their own discussions later this week. And if you haven't seen it yet, the Museum of the City of New York recently began exhibiting a collection of World War I-era posters and prints created by New Yorker artists and illustrators who were enlisted in the war effort.
Join Alexandra Lange (architecture critic for Curbed) for a conversation with Samuel Zipp (Professor of American Studies and Urban Studies at Brown University) and writer and curator Nathan Storring about Jane Jacobs' powerful evolving legacy. Zipp and Storring are the co-editors of a new, previously-uncollected collection of Jacobs' writings and talks called Vital Little Plans: The Short Works of Jane Jacobs.”
“Kapoor’s talk at The New School accompanies Public Art Fund’s upcoming exhibition Descension, the artist’s viscerally arresting new installation...Kapoor’s talk will focus on his long engagement with public space, reflecting on the creative, cultural and political dimensions of his practice.”
“Architects Momoyo Kaijima and Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, co-founders of the highly regarded architectural firm Atelier Bow-Wow in Tokyo, discuss the architect's role in post-disaster revitalization, and their findings from their work in Tohoku for the last six years.”
“Posters and Patriotism: Selling World War I in New York examines the outpouring of posters, flyers, magazine art, sheet music covers, and other mass-produced images created by these New Yorkers to stir the American public to wartime loyalty, duty, and sacrifice.”
