Book Launch and Roundtable: Landform Building, Edited by Stan Allen and Marc McQuade

Saturday, September 17, 2011, 6–9 pm

Special Event

Bridge and stairs built onto a rock face

Join us for the launch of Landform Building: Architecture’s New Terrain, a book edited by Stan Allen and Marc McQuade, designed by Thumb and published by Lars Müller with the Princeton School of Architecture. Landform Building traces an alternative history of architecture understood as artificial landscape.

Presentations by Lucia Allais, Nina Katchadourian, Geoff Manaugh, Eric Sanderson, and Alejandro Zaera-Polo will address the larger context of the book: the place of nature in the contemporary city, and the many ways in which the division of nature and culture is being remapped today.
