Mark Your Calendar: Michael Graves ‘Past as Prologue’ Symposium

denver central library

Stock up on Peeps and reserve your ticket to “Past as Prologue,” a just-announced symposium that will be held “in honor of Michael Graves on the occasion of his fiftieth year in practice.” Organized by The Architectural League of New York and hosted by Parsons The New School for Design, the November 22nd confab will consider Graves’ deep influences on the disciplines of architecture and design. Tackling subjects such as architectural pedagogy, drawing, and the design of objects (fingers crossed for a session on “the Hitler teapot”!) will be the likes of Billie Tsien, Steven Holl, Paul Goldberger, and Museum of Arts and Design director Glenn Adamson, with a day-capping conversation among Graves, Peter Eisenman, and Adele Chatfield Taylor, the former director of the American Academy in Rome. Tickets are now available: they’re $25 each, but League members and students can attend gratis.
