AGENDA | Independent Projects: Presentations by League-sponsored Recipients of NYSCA Grants
One more time, The Architectural League surprises us with their great activities and agenda. This time they will be presenting the Independent Projects: Presentations by League-sponsored Recipients of New York State Council on the Arts Grants with an Introduction by Anne Van Ingen and presentations by Margaret Morton and Georgeen Theodore.
Anne Van Ingen, Director, Architecture, Planning & Design Program and Capital Projects, New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) will introduce the program by outlining this year’s grant application process. Margaret Morton will discuss her photographic book, The Muslim Cemeteries of Kyrgyzstan, which explores Kyrgyzstan’s extensive and architecturally unique cemeteries, in fact, ornate miniature cities. Kyrgyz nomads, often described as having left behind no great monuments or books, left behind a magnificent architectural legacy when they buried their dead.
Georgeen Theodore is an architect, urban designer, and Assistant Professor at New Jersey Institute of Technology’s College of Architecture and Design, where she is the Associate Director of the Infrastructure Planning program. She is a founding partner and principal of Interboro, a New York City-based architecture and planning research office. Recent work includes completing “LentSpace,” a temporary outdoor cultural space in New York City, curating “Community,” the American portion of the 2009 Rotterdam Architecture Biennale, and creating the first neighborhood redevelopment plan of the Booker administration in Newark, New Jersey.
