Inhabitat is excited to anounce that we are getting together with a band of architecture blogs to put on what promises to be an amazing event at the Storefront for Art and Architecture [2] from Tuesday, May 29, to Saturday, June 2, 2007 .

The event, which we are calling POSTOPOLIS, is a five-day event of continuous conversation about architecture, urbanism, landscape, and design blogging with BLDGBLOG (Los Angeles) [3], City of Sound (London) [4], Inhabitat (New York City), and Subtopia (San Francisco) [5], in the beautiful Storefront For Art and Architecture Gallery [6] in lower Manhattan. For anyone interested in architecture, design and technology, this is going to be an UNMISSABLE event, so pencil it into your calendars now!

POSTOPOLIS EVENT IN NYC, Postopolis, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Inhabitat, BLDGBLOG, City of Sound, Subtopia, Architecture Blogger Conference

By inviting four bloggers from four different cities, to host a series of live discussions, interviews, slideshows, panels, talks, and other presentations, New York’s Storefront for Art and Architecture aims to fuse the informal energy and interdisciplinary approach of the architectural blogosphere with the immediacy of face to face interaction. For the past five years, blogging has helped to expand the bounds of architectural discussion; its influence now spreads far beyond the internet to affect museums, institutions, and even higher education. Postopolis! is an historic opportunity to look back at what architecture blogs have achieved – both to celebrate their strengths and to think about their future.

The Storefront for Art and Architecture [2] is a New York City art gallery founded in 1982. In 1993 the building was renovated in a collaboration between architect Steven Holl and artist Vito Acconci [6]to create a unique ground-floor exhibition space with moveable hinged facade panels that can be opened and closed to create different degrees of accessibility to the street and public. The space is not only an amazing work of architecture, but also a great gallery and event space, and we are very excited to be working with Storefront to put this exhibition together. If you live in the area, don’t miss it!
