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.
The discussion was moderated by Faith Rose.
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
