Event description

Description

For his book, Codex New York: Typologies of the City, photographer Stanley Greenberg walked every block of Manhattan capturing images of the overlooked, underseen elements that we take for granted every day: alleys, skybridges, buttresses, parking sheds. Architect Michael Sorkin, one of the great urbanists of our time, captures the essence of cities in his design, criticism, and teaching practices, and in his many books including Twenty Minutes in Manhattan, a chronicle of the musings prompted but his daily walk from home to work. These two city observers reflect on the humble city spaces that most of us look past, look through, but rarely look at, in a conversation moderated by Karrie Jacobs, founding editor-in-chief of Dwell and a professional observer of the manmade environment herself.
