In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Dec. 12, 2017.

Since the end of World War II, South Korea's foreign policy has been largely shaped by security concerns triggered by North Korea and the struggle among the powers surrounding the Korean Peninsula. Today, the growing nuclear threat posed by the Kim Jong-un regime has increased tensions on the Korean Peninsula. The near future outlook for peace and stability is far from certain.His Excellency Cho Tae-yul, Permanent Representative of the Republic of Korea to the United Nations, will address these issues, and during an extended Q&A will open the discussion to include, among others, the North Korean nuclear issue, the autocratic regime of Kim Jong-un, the future of the US-Korea alliance, the triangular relationship between the US, China and Korea, the deployment of THAAD, and Japan-Korea relations.

Today’s fertile atmosphere provides a novel condition for the specific relationship between architects and structural engineers as both try breathlessly to keep up with the pace of change driven by technological advancement, economic and ecological challenges. The combination of the brute forces of computation and intuition have encouraged new innovations in processes and methods of design allowing a freer movement between disciplines and binding design as well as fabrication and construction more coherently. Professor Hanif Kara will try to share the impact of these expanded opportunities through a series of built projects. The presentation will show examples of “design research” that can be realized as projects from the use of new materials through to bespoke computation and inversion of the most familiar processes that have been routinized at the expense of creativity and innovation. The presentation will speculate about the need to banish the perception of the polarizing characterization of the Architect and Engineer that is prevalent in practice, by adapting a new behavior of interaction, deep appreciation of the design disciplines that the presenter has labeled as “The Pink Noise Of Design Engineering.”

The lecture examines the nature and origins of freedom in socio-historical terms. Parallels are drawn between Ancient Athens and the U.S. South in the role of large-scale slavery and race as constitutive forces in the emergence of Herrenvolk and broader democracy, as well as the commitment to freedom as supreme value. The lecture explores the consequences for, and tragic engagement of African Americans in this central paradox of American history and political culture.Lecturer Orlando Patterson, a historical and cultural sociologist, is the John Cowles Professor of Sociology at Harvard University.

Between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, British culture saw a surge in the interest in Dante and his Divina Commedia. Writers, artists, translators and critics engaged with his figure and work with unprecedented intensity, thereby stimulating a widespread fascination with Dante that also inspired an increasing number of original works of fiction based on episodes from the Commedia. The talk discusses some of these rewritings by focusing on poems by liberal and radical authors such as Lord Byron, Leigh Hunt and Felicia Hemans, who remade Dante to promote ideas of political and social freedom and in the process confirmed his status as a crucial figure of modernity.A lecture by Diego Saglia (Università di Parma).
