POSTPONED! SOM to launch 'The Future of Public Space' at the Strand

Due to the inclement weather, the Strand Bookstore has canceled the launch event for The Future of Public Space, the second in Skidmore, Owings & Merrill's SOM Thinkers Series. Check back to see when we reschedule this event with art critic Ben Davis moderating a panel including artist Olalekan Jeyifous, artist and designer Damon Rich, architect and designer Oana Stanescu, and architect and planner, Claire Weisz.

POSTPONED! SOM to launch 'The Future of Public Space' at the Strand

Routine discussions on public space typically omit a gamut of possibilities ripe for critical discussion. In a collection of short but intellectually invigorating reads, The Future of Public Space, reflects on these possibilities beyond typical contexts, exploring a wide variety of impacts that different types of public space—urban and rural, real and virtual—can have on everyday experiences in an increasingly privatized world. Amplifying voices beyond those within the world of conventional architecture criticism, this book considers how such experiences might change in the future.

The Future of Public Space, is the latest volume of SOM Thinkers Series, a series conceived by the renowned architecture, interior design, engineering, and urban planning firm, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Originating from a desire to start a public conversation about the built environment, each installment of SOM Thinkers Series poses provocative questions and speculations about architecture from perspectives outside its professional culture, bringing together leading voices on a single topic. Please join us in celebrating the release of The Future of Public Space, with a live panel that folds this conversation back onto the world of design, featuring innovative practitioners working to implement bold and challenging ideas in the public realm.

This event will take place in the Strand Bookstore Rare Book Room on the Strand's 3rd floor, accessible via the store elevator or at 826 Broadway. This event is free and open to the public!
