Theater of Architecture Discussion
Hugh Hardy, Jim Houghton, Charles Renfro, Michael Sorkin
Introduced by Joe Melillo
A discussion on the occasion of the publication of Hugh Hardy’s book Theater of Architecture, which uses a variety of his projects to explore his thesis that the profession of architecture’s “true strength lies in the building of communities… by enhancing experience.” This panel will use the experiential aspects of theater design as a starting point for a discussion of architecture in the broadest sense, particularly the use of public space.

Jim Houghton is the founding artistic director of Signature Theatre Company in New York.
Charles Renfro is a principal of Diller Scofidio + Renfro.

Water and Main Streets, DUMBO, Brooklyn
Monday, September 24, 7–9pm
Join The Complete Engraver author Nancy Sharon Collins for a hands-on workshop investigating the history and etiquette of engraved social stationery. Emerse yourself in the almost forgotten world of vintage lettering styles, monograms, crests, seals, and calling cards.
Try your hand at engraving a letterform with centuries-old techniques, learn how to wield a graver or a burin, find inspiration in vintage printed specimens, and enjoy a glass of wine with the author.
The Complete Engraver will be available for sale and signing at the workshop.
