Topiary Tango.jpg

What is topiary and why are we talking about it?

Topiary Tango takes a playfully serious look into the horticultural practice of trimming bushes into geometric shapes. Curated by the 2017 Stewardson Keefe LeBrun Travel Grant recipient Mark Zlotsky, the exhibition delves into the research conducted during his topiary-laden trek through Italy, France, and the United Kingdom.

Learn the ancient history of verdant sculpting, see how the craft creates flamboyant figures out of banal bushes, and consider how this leafy medium can be used as an architectural building material.

Join us for the opening on July 11!

AIA New York: Center For Architecture

Minoru Yamasaki: Humanist Architecture for a Modernist World

Date: Wednesday, February 13, 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Location: At the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Pl., NYC

Credits: 1.5 LU 
Price: Free for AIA members, DOCOMOMO members, and students; $10 for general public

Architectural historian Dale Allen Gyure will discuss the career and life of Minoru Yamasaki (1912–1986), best know as the architect of the World Trade Center. Born to Japanese immigrant parents in Seattle, Yamasaki became one of the towering figures of midcentury architecture, even appearing on the cover of Time magazine in 1963. His self-proclaimed humanist designs merged the modern materials and functional considerations of postwar American architecture with traditional elements such as arches and colonnades. Yamasaki’s reputation began to decline in the 1970s with the mixed critical reception of the World Trade Center and the spectacular failure of St. Louis’s Pruitt-Igoe Apartments, which came to symbolize the flaws of midcentury urban renewal policy.

Gyure is the author of the first book to examine Yamasaki’s life and career, Minoru Yamasaki: Humanist Architecture for a Modernist World, published in November 2017 by Yale University Press. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing from Yale University Press.

Speakers: Dale Allen Gyure, PhD, Professor and Associate Chair of Architecture, Lawrence Technological University; author, Minoru Yamasaki: Humanist Architecture for a Modernist World

Organized by: AIANY Historic Buildings Committee and DOCOMOMO New York/Tri-State

New York Textile Month

New York Textile Month invites you to launch the locally sourced, designed and woven NYTB Project. 

These heirloom pieces are the culmination of a unique collaboration between the founder of NYTM and trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort, along with Pascale Gatzen, co-founder of the worker cooperative ‘friends of light’. 

NYTB's are designed by ‘friends of light’, Lori Weitzner studio, Suzanne Tick Studio, Lidewij Edelkoort, Thompson St Studio & Hiroko Takeda Studio. Each uniquely designed blanket is woven by Terry Buck at her workshop in the Hudson Valley. The fine wool is made by Buckwheat Bridge Angoras in Elizaville, NY where the sheep are swaddled with blankets winter long.
 

Please join the founder, farmer, designer and weavers, and share the opportunity to promote and sustain New York Textile arts.
