Postopolis! at Storefront for Art and Architecture
Digital dialogue in architecture and urbanism will be featured at the end of May as part of a five-day symposium called Postopolis! at the Storefront for Art and Architecture. Four bloggers of well-respected design blogs from four separate cities will descend upon New York City to host discussions, presentations, and panels, face-to-face. The featured blogs include BLDGBLOG, City of Sound, Inhabit, and Subtopia.
From the Storefront for Art and Architecture (along with the sharp-looking graphic above):
"Postopolis! is a five-day event of near-continuous conversation about architecture, urbanism, landscape, and design. Four bloggers, from four different cities, will host a series of live discussions, interviews, slideshows, panels, talks, and other presentations, and fuse the informal energy and interdisciplinary approach of the architectural blogosphere with the immediacy of face to face interaction.
BLDGBLOG (Los Angeles), City of Sound (London),Inhabitat (New York City), and Subtopia (San Francisco) will meet in person to orchestrate the event, inviting everyone from practicing architects, city planners, and urban theorists to military historians, game developers, and materials scientists to give their take on both the built and natural environments.
For the past five years, blogging has helped to expand the bounds of architectural discussion; its influence now spreads far beyond the internet to affect museums, institutions, and even higher education. Postopolis! is an historic opportunity to look back at what architecture blogs have achieved – both to celebrate their strengths and to think about their future."
