6 - 8pm, Wednesday 1st Dec
Justin Beal - Sandfuture
Author Justin Beal will be in discussion with writer Owen Hatherley about the new book published by MIT Press.
Sandfuture is a book about the life of the architect Minoru Yamasaki (1912-1986), who remains on the margins of history despite the enormous influence of his work on American architecture and society. That Yamasaki's most famous projects--the Pruitt-Igoe apartments in St. Louis and the original World Trade Center in New York--were both destroyed on national television, thirty years apart, makes his relative obscurity all the more remarkable.
