Time Discover Mies van der Rohe As The Man And The Architect

Discover Mies van der Rohe as the man and the architect through the eyes of those who best know both.

Trace Mies’ progress from traditionalist to radical modernist with Art historian Franz Schulze and architect Edward Windhorst, authors of Mies van der Rohe: A Critical Biography. Mr. Schulze and Mr. Windhorst tell the compelling story behind the architect’s life and his architecture which resulted in some of the most famous 20th century buildings. Join 92YTribeca for a fun, inspiring look at the famous architect with some afternoon wine and cheese.

 

"Reading Images" Presents the Launch of Socialist Architecture: The Vanishing Act

The Socialist Federation of Yugoslavia dissolved in the early 1990s and new states were created. Each of these new regions inherited monuments, buildings, landscapes, and infrastructure, that were constructed for the Socialist Federation needs. After Yugoslavia disappeared, the majority of the inherited architecture was neglected, deteriorated, or repurposed.

Join Storefront for Art and Architecture for their "Reading Images" series on October 16, 2012 at 7 pm, as they celebrate the launch of Socialist Architecture: The Vanishing Act, a collaborative book by photographer Armin Linke and architect Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss. The book documents the current fate of the inherited architecture in five particular countries: Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, and Serbia.
