Mark Yr Calendars: Architecture Books / Yet to be Written / 1982-2017-2052

This is my kind of event: 5 hours of architects talking about books. It takes place at The Great Hall of the Cooper Union on September 23rd. Details are below the image.



Architecture Books / Yet to be Written / 1982-2017-2052 asks seminal voices to present and discuss the making of architecture and books. The event brings together major figures in the discipline and profession to reflect upon the last thirty five years of architecture and book production, and to evaluate the missing volumes of a history in the writing.

Participants include Diana Agrest, Stan Allen, Amale Andraos, Harry Cobb, Peggy Deamer, Elizabeth Diller, Steven Holl, Sanford Kwinter, Thom Mayne, Daniel Libeskind, Joan Ockman, Spyridon Papapetros, Brett Steele, Bernard Tschumi, Anthony Vidler, Rafael Viñoly, Mark Wigley, and James Wines, among others.

Each speaker will present an architecture book published in the last thirty five years that they consider to be fundamental to the understanding of contemporary architecture culture, as well as a “book yet to be written.”

As part of the event, Storefront will present BOOKS-NOW, a selection of signed architecture books published over the last year. Books will be on sale at a special discounted rate.
