At the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (Columbia GSAPP), public programs play an integral role in fulfilling the school’s responsibility to host a diverse and lively community where unwavering intellectual generosity and the desire to communicate and exchange are at the foundation of how we learn and grow together.
In response to the current political climate, Columbia GSAPP and the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture are collaborating to create a venue for ongoing, open dialogue among students and faculty through a series of events titled The First 100 Days. The series starts on January 20 and continues in February and March, providing an opportunity for participants to discuss, organize, and plan for changes to come during the Trump administration.
Coinciding with the Inauguration, GSAPP's journal of critical essays on architecture, the Avery Review, releases a special issue that gathers together a range of the field's most incisive scholars and practitioners to propose urgent avenues of architectural thought for the coming years. Titled AND NOW: Architecture Against a Developer Presidency, the issue can be read online at www.averyreview.com as of January 19, 2017.
All activities are free and open to the public.
