Log 33 Authors in Conversation, Parsons The New School For Design, April 15, 7PM

Please join us to celebrate the publication of our Winter 2015 issue, Log 33. Editor Cynthia Davidson and Log 33 contributors Mark Foster Gage and David Ruy will be joined by Michael Young, Ferda Kolatan and Ed Keller for a discussion of the ideas suggested by object-oriented ontology in architecture today.
 
Log 33
Log 33 delivers emerging currents and renewed interests in architectural thought. It includes a thorough examination of object-oriented philosophy: two essays offering contrasting positions on its value for the architectural discipline as well as a conversation between philosopher Graham Harman and architects Todd Gannon, David Ruy, and Tom Wiscombe. Objects are invoked throughout the issue in myriad other ways – in essays on the postcritical legacy, architecture and objecthood, shape and character, history and machines – highlighting the currency and multivalence of the term object in the discourse today. Log 33, which follows two best-selling issues, also presents Wolfgang Schivelbusch’s “World Machines,” the new preface to his recently republished book The Railway Journey (plus an introduction to his work by Sanford Kwinter) as well as critical commentary on architectural events from around the world, essays on urban noise and architectural acoustics, new explorations of the architect’s hand in drawing, and more.

A Question of Qualities
Jeffrey Kipnis's writing, thinking, and teaching casts architecture as both an intellectual discourse and a lived, affective experience. His essays on contemporary architects are less about making critical judgments than about explication, exegesis, and provocation. In these eleven essays, written between 1990 and 2008, he considers projects, concepts, and buildings by some of the most recognized architects working today, with special attention to the productions of affect. He explores intuition in the work of Morphosis, exhilaration in Coop Himmelb(l)au, freedom in the work of Rem Koolhaas and OMA, magic in Steven Holls buildings, and anxiety in Rafael Moneos writing about contemporary architecture.
