If in NYC, the Architectural League has another of its thought-provoking panels coming up tomorrow night, featuring photographer of Americana, John Margolies:
Over 30 years, John Margolies has logged more than 100,000 miles, and taken some 75,000 photographs of about 15,000 buildings, signs, storefronts, and other commercial and civic structures, relics of a disappearing, uniquely American landscape. He has always had an instinct for the exotic in the mundane, the dreamy and prideful and curious in the everyday. He records what most of us either fail to see or take for granted.
Some of those items include the aforementioned gas stations and giant fish, miniature golf courses, motels, movie theaters, and, apparently, parrots. If you think that sounds fun, how about this to sweeten the deal even more: Margolies will be joined by Phil Patton and Michael Bierut. 6:30pm, all information here.
