On September 23rd, Storefront for Art and Architecture will launch the New York Architecture Book Fair with a day-long event at The Great Hall at the Cooper Union.
Architecture Books / Yet to be Written / 1982-2017-2052 asks seminal voices to present and discuss the making of architecture and books. The event brings together major figures in the discipline and profession to reflect upon the last 35 years of architecture and book production, and to evaluate the missing volumes of a history in the writing.
Participants include Diana Agrest, Stan Allen, Amale Andraos, Harry Cobb, Beatriz Colomina, Peggy Deamer, Elizabeth Diller, Steven Holl, Sanford Kwinter, Daniel Libeskind, Thom Mayne, Toshiko Mori, Joan Ockman, Spyridon Papapetros, Brett Steele, Bernard Tschumi, Anthony Vidler, Rafael Viñoly, Mark Wigley, and James Wines, among others.
Each speaker will present an architecture book published in the last thirty five years that they consider to be fundamental to the understanding of contemporary architecture culture, as well as a “book yet to be written.”
As part of the event, Storefront will present BOOKS-NOW, a selection of signed architecture books published over the last year. Books will be on sale at a special discounted rate.
This conference is presented in partnership with The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union.
