People Talking About Architecture – 01.31.2006

Architectural Association:
Cynthia Davidson - An Introduction to Log
2:00 PM – Front Member’s Room (36 Bedford Square)
Log is a New York based journal that serves as an open forum for the critical discussion of contemporary issues of architecture, the city, and the cultural issues that architecture and cities engage with. During this open seminar event Cynthia Davidson, Editor of Log, will make a brief presentation of its ‘project’ and the ways in which the articles in the journal’ first half-dozen issues have engaged architecture and urbanism.

Jeff Kipnis & Robert Somol - On Koolhaas & Eisenman: Two Views
7:00 PM - Lecture Hall (36 Bedford Square, London)
Jeffrey Kipnis and Robert Somol offer their own perspectives on the previous evening’s events, each giving a lecture about the critical practices of Peter Eisenman and Rem Koolhaas, presented in their own terms. Following the presentations, AA Head of History and Theory Studies Mark Cousins will moderate a conversation between Kipnis and Somol on the issues they have raised, including the relationship between critical and theoretical practice in architecture today.

McGill University:
Patricia Patkau - (Untitled Lecture)
6:00 PM - Room 201 Macdonald-Harrington Building (815 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal)
McGill offers no description of what she will say. Remember when visiting lecturers where required to submit a paper on the subject of their lecture before getting the green light to speak? Those days are gone.

New Haven:
Keller Easterling - Enduring Innocence
6:00 PM - Labyrinth Books (290 York Street)
Reception & discussion to celebrate the release of Ms. Easterling's new book, Enduring Innocence. NYC fans can catch her at the end of the week at a Columbia symposium, if they want to save train fare and still get their book signed.

University of Toronto:
Renée Daoust - From the City to the Object
