Celebrity Architecture School Deathmatch

We’ll admit here that we’ve always had a little tiny barely perceptible hardly noticeable really unless you know where to look chip on our shoulder about our experiences in architecture school. So we’re the most feeling tonight’s AIA exhibition and event, 9 Architecture Schools Expo(sed), in which deans from, you guessed it, nine architecture schools battle it out, kept from fistfights only by the excess moderation of Metropolis’ editor Susan Szenasy. The AIA’s being very proper about it all, though:

For the first time ever, the New York metropolitan area’s 9 schools of architecture have an opportunity to interact with one another.

If by interact they mean smackdown. Our money’s on a Stan Allen/Anthony Vidler tag-team take on Mark Wigley with a little hot RAMS action. Uh huh.

Panel’s tonight, 6-8 with a party from 8-11, Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia. RSVP to rsvp@aiany.org. Exhibition runs until October 1.
