Despite the 90 degree weather, 100% humidity and interesting “acoustic issues” we encountered while holed in the tiny concrete (un-air-conditioned) Storefront gallery space for 5 days, the Postopolis event was amazing. So much so that I have to say that people who weren’t able to attend really missed out on something special. Where else would you ever have the chance to chat with Lebbeus Woods, Lot-ek, Stanley Greenberg, Michael Bierut, Terreform, and your favorite architecture bloggers — all while drinking beer in a modern concrete sweat-lodge in the middle of New York City? Fortunately for all of you who missed it we’ve got videos of each talk, lots of insightful recaps, online discussion, and countless photos, so you can enjoy all the inspiration and intensity of Postopolis from the comfort of your own air-conditioned home…

I was blown away by the energy and talent of my insanely productive and prolific fellow archi-bloggers Dan Hill, Bryan Finoki and Geoff Manaugh (all of whom seem to be much quicker on the draw at getting their Postopolis coverage up than me. Do they not sleep?) A big big thanks to Joseph Grima, the director of Storefront, and an unstoppable whirlwind of big ideas and positive energy. I’m super impressed and grateful at the way he took an unusual exhibition idea and gradually shaped it into a dynamic, vibrant and groundbreaking event. Kudos to the Postopolis team. Looking forward to Postopolis 2008!
