For the past year I’ve been collaborating with the fine folks at the Architectural League of New York and the Center for an Urban Future to organize a design study of New York’s branch libraries. On December the teams presented their proposals — and a bunch of civic officials and community leaders shared their thoughts — at an epic event at the Japan Society. That event was very much policy-oriented, so the design teams had only a few minutes each to present their work. We wanted to celebrate the teams’ fantastic contributions — so we’ve organized a second, more design-focused event at The New School for next Monday, January 12. The five teams will have a goodly amount of time to do their thing, and then CUF’s David Giles and I will moderate a conversation.
You can find more info on the ArchLeague’s website, where you can also RSVP.
