Rhythm and Flow: The New Yorker Mia Reinoso Genoni – October 21, 2009
By Mia Reinoso Genoni New Haven Advocate
Why Architecture Matters is an extended meditation on the deceptively simple three-word phrase, a meditation that allows for rumination, emotion, observation and even contradiction.
Successful architecture, he tells us, “makes life better,” “take[s] our breath away,” “invites belief,” and “evokes indescribable joy.” Architecture is “the making of place and the making of memory,” and a great building “must have a use, it must stand up — and it must be a work of art.”
Paul Goldberger will speak on Public Architecture at 6 p.m. Oct. 28. New Haven Public Library, Main Branch, 133 Elm St. 203-946-8130 ext. 314, newhavenlibrarypatrons.com. Free. No reservations required.
