Gallery: POSTOPOLIS – FRIDAY JUNE 1st

 

Postopolis has been open in NYC since Tuesday, and the past three days have been amazingly chock full of things to see and do. So many provocative speakers and discussions have been crammed into such a short amount of time, that I end each day totally exhausted from trying to take it all in. It just keeps getting better and better, so if you live in New York City, I highly recommend stopping by before the event comes to a close on Saturday. There’s just two days left peeps, so come on down! Here’s today’s line-up:

1:30 pm: Julia Solis 2:10 pm: Andrew Blum 3:00 pm: Tom Vanderbilt, Michael Bierut and William Drenttel 4:10 pm: James Sanders 4:50 pm: David Benjamin & Soo-in Yang 5:30 pm: Kevin Slavin 6.10 pm: Eric Rodenbeck 6:50 pm: Laura Kurgan 7:30 pm: Lawrence Weschler

Gallery: POSTOPOLIS IS COMING TO NYC!

 

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 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), City of Sound (London), Inhabitat (New York City), and Subtopia (San Francisco), in the beautiful Storefront For Art and Architecture Gallery 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! Tuesday, May 29, to Saturday, June 2, 2007 Storefront For Art and Architecture

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 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 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!
