Editor’s Note

The Spring season has started off with a number of openings. Last week’s Barcelona-related exhibitions “Polis: 7 Lessons from the European Prize for Urban Public Space [2000-2012],” and “Palaces for the People: Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile” opened at the Center for Architecture and Museum of the City of New York, respectively. Join us tomorrow at the Center for Architecture for the opening of the exhibition “American Society of Landscape Architects New York Chapter 2014 Awards.”

In addition, don’t forget to reserve your seat for the AIA New York Chapter Honors and Awards Luncheon. The final reservation and payment deadline is next Wednesday, 04.09.14. We look forward to seeing you there!

Finally, please support FIGMENT NYC, the AIANY Emerging New York Architects Committee (ENYA), and the Structural Engineers Association of New York’s (SEAoNY) City of Dreams pavilion competition winner for this year, CDR Studio’s “Governor’s Cup.” The pavilion will be a serpentine canopy made out of 30,000 reclaimed plastic cups. CDR Studio has initiated a Kickstarter campaign to raise $10,000 for materials, storage, transportation, the organization of workshops and work on the island, maintenance, and disassembly. Volunteers are also welcome to sign up here.
