Many people think of the New York City subway as one of the largest, most efficient, if not the cleanest mass transit systems in the world. Few, however, think of it as the largest and longest art gallery on the planet. Well, they don't know what they are missing. This lively walking AND subway riding tour visits over a dozen subway stations to experience a selection of these striking often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public. Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly. Tour takes place every Thursday.

Discussion |
Natural light sources and their associated phenomena are distinguished by their capacity to incite awe, fear, curiosity, and fascination––emotions that contribute to the sense that we are part of a larger system we may never fully understand. Solar light, which encompasses both sunlight and daylight, offers an opportunity for designers to incorporate the dynamism and variability of natural light into the built environment as a counterpoint to the relative stability of architectural form. This event—-featuring leaders in the field including Davidson Norris from Carpenter Norris Consulting, Star Davis from Arup and others—-will expand upon critical issues of place and practice that impact natural light and architecture. This program expands upon questions raised in the upcoming Natural Light issue of Lighting: Illumination in Architecture magazine (UK) edited by Glenn Shrum, Director of Parsons Lighting Design program and principal of Flux Studio.

Dr. Meral Ekincioglu, a visiting scholar at the MIT, HTC program (2014-2016) who received her Ph.D. in Architecture from Istanbul Technical University in 2011, will elaborate and discuss some significant Turkish women practitioners dealing with commercial architecture, urban planning, historic preservation in the U.S. architecture and their contribution to the built environment from the 1960s until today. Most of those Turkish women practitioners are silent on their career and their cross-cultural encounters have been left out of the established history of postwar architecture. Considering the lack of a collective memory that recognizes those women architects in the U.S. and the Republic of Turkey, their continued absence in the scholarly literature raises a question: "Can their presence in their practice be strategically constructed and maintained in architecture history?"

Even as the Great Depression devastated New York, the city saw a renaissance in public works, as the federal government stepped up to finance a breathtaking list of projects: bridges, tunnels, airports, sewers, roads, hospitals, parks, schools, artwork, government buildings, and more. The legacy of this era stands, quite literally, all around us. Gray Brechin, founder of the Living New Deal, showcases a new map locating these often-invisible sites around NYC, and discusses their enduring impact on public health in the metropolis. Conversation will follow (speaker TBA), contrasting the New Deal approach to infrastructure and job-creation legislation today.
