This class is for anyone interested in reading and talking about architecture.  The class is open to anyone including architects, critics and the architecturally curious.  We have no leader and meet on the last Sunday of each month. We have agreed to use the comments section of this page to choose the book for the next meeting. If you missed the previous meetings but are still interested in the class, please feel free to join the discusion, and hopefully we will see you at the next meeting!

Hello,

I hope everyone has been having a nice summer! After a brief hiatus this class has an exciting new format. We will still be meeting on the last Sunday of each month but we will begin each meeting by screening a film that compliments the reading. Please check out the new course page: http://nyc.thepublicschool.org/class/2772.

Hope to see you all at our first meeting on Sunday, September 26th at 5pm!

Hi Rachel,
I just received confirmation from Josiah McEheny that he is available to join us in a discussion of "The Light Club" on Sunday, 12.December.10 at 6pm. Can we confirm availability of space and group.
Thanks,
John

Proposed dates to avoid conflicts with Halloween, Thanksgiving and the Holidays.
Sunday, 29 August 2010
Sunday, 26 September 2010
Sunday, 24 Oktober 2010
Sunday, 21 November 2010
Sunday, 19 December 2010
Film: 6 - 8.
Discussion: 8 - 9 / 9:30.

Unfortunately all of the committee members who participate in this reading group (including myself) will be out of town or busy this Sunday (July 25th).

We are planning to change the format of this class. We will still assign a text and meet on the last Sunday of each month but from now on each reading will be paired with film. Instead of meeting in the afternoon we will meet at 6pm, watch the film, have drinks and discuss the reading.

For our first film/book pairing we have chosen "Midnight Cowboy" and an excerpt from "Delirious New York". We can add "The Flagrant Delit" if people are interested.

I will post the reading and more information about the films.

It seems like a lot of people are in and out of town and busy enjoying their summers. Should we schedule the next meeting for the last Sunday in August or should we hold off until September?

Let me know and I will schedule the class!

Are we meeting this Sunday, 25.July.10?
I have The Flagrant Delit (Delirious New York) DVD if
we want to view.

I have been having discussions with Josiah McElheny concerning a Sunday in September or Oktober where he might join us in discussing his book "The Light Club". I will keep you posted.
"Crystalline Architectures, an exhibition curated by Josiah McElheny that includes historical works by architects and designers affiliated with the Glass Chain and Arbistrat für Kunstis" is currently on view thru 20 August at the ANDREA ROSEN GALLERY 525 W24TH ST, NEW YORK, NY 10011. Monday - Friday, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.
I was there yesterday and it is definitely worth seeing.
I believe I have also been successful in obtaining a copy of Flagrant Delit by the filmmaker Jean Pierre Jacquet. This is the Delirious New York film shown at MoMA last year. I am awaiting delivery and will keep you posted.
All the best,
John

From your responses it seems like there is consensus that we should meet on Sunday. I will change the date on the calender and see you all tomorrow. Sorry again for the confusion.

See you in the park!

Yeah, I didn't look ahead when the 26th was proposed to see that it was a Sunday. I work every Saturday so Sunday is always better for me.

I can make it on Sunday.
