Public Space & Public Consciousness

A lecture by Michael Kimmelman
Tuesday, March 6, 2012
6 PM
Event Oval, The Diana Center

Michael Kimmelman, architecture critic for The New York Times, explores “the political power of physical places” evident in locations from Tahrir Square to Zuccotti Park. Such recently reclaimed spaces encourage us to think anew about how we want the world we live in to be organized and about our role as citizens in creating change. As Kimmelman notes in a recent New York Times’ essay, “We clearly use locales, edifices, architecture to house our memories and political energy and shape our consciousness about the world.” Join us as we reimagine physical and intellectual spaces to consider ideas and actions that serve the public good.
