The Intimate Metropolis 8/11
Date: Saturday 1 November 2003
The distinction between 'public' and 'private' is entrenched in our value judgements, our systems of legislation, and the structuring of our physical surroundings. It has direct consequences for the way we lead our lives. Yet the ways in which we distinguish between public and private, and to what effect, are issues less frequently discussed. This conference focuses on the manifestations in architectural and urban form and other means of representation of the multiple interactions between private and public, urban and domestic. Paul Emmons - Intimate Circulations: Representing Flow in House and City. Katharina Borsi - Urban Domestic: The Spatiality of the Berlin Block. Chris Hight - Units and Golden Lanes: Instruments for Domesticating the Post-War Metropolis. Roy Kozlovsky - Beat Literature and the Domestication of American Space. Discussion chaired by Larry Barth featuring Ellen Rowley, Karin Jaschke, Paul Emmons, Katharina Borsi, Chris Hight, Roy Kozlovsky.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
