ALDO ROSSI IN NEW YORK
When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM THURSDAY, MARCH 5
Where: At The AIANY Center
In this presentation, organized by The Center for Architecture with Frank Gerard Godlewski and The Fondazione Aldo Rossi, architects and planners will discuss the contributions of Aldo Rossi's art and architecture to New York City's landscape.
Architect Morris Adjmi, who worked with Rossi and curated his latest Milan exhibition, will present drawings and projects that they collaborated on for NYC as well as new buildings. The presentation will include material from the new book, Window of the Poet by The Bonnefanten Museum in Maastrich (designed by Rossi).
Also from Rossi's Studio, Frank Gerard Godlewski will conduct a discussion with Gigi Salomon, an urban planner and documentarian of the "Tribeca Pioneer Artist" community who helped transform the shape of Soho and Tribeca in the 1960s and 80s.
There will be a question and answer session and discussion at the conclusion of the presentation. The intention of the presentation is to illustrate how art becomes built objects within the New York downtown streetscape and the Urban Composition, a strong characteristic of Aldo Rossi's work.
