In conjunction with Archtober, Van Alen Book Club will read Witold Rybczynski’s Makeshift Metropolis. Looking back on a long career of thinking and writing about cities, Rybczynski considers trends and visions throughout the history of American citymaking, and asks whether any of those past ideas are relevant to a nation as diverse and dispersed as the U.S. is today.
This meeting of the Van Alen Book Club is part of our 2018 fall festival, City-Making from the Outside In.
Open to new and returning participants.
Food and beverages will be provided
