About this Month's Presentation with Sinclair Black
"Geography of Opportunity: Designing Austin"
Great buildings make for great streets, and great streets make for great cities. Please join us for a discussion on how Austin is a "Geography of Opportunity" for truly great urban design. Sinclair Black will discuss his work on "Great Streets" project as well as current planning for putting I-35 underground through downtown.
Sinclair Black is an award-winning architect and urban designer, author, member of the venerated College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects, and beloved professor emeritus at the UT School of Architecture. For more than 50 years, he has studied the vernacular of Central Texas architecture to create and inspire designs that celebrate and preserve the region’s natural and man-made beauty.
What to Expect at Architalks
Inspiration. Insight. Discussion.
The talks are usually 45 minutes, with time for a few questions at the end. The talk is in the equally-inspiring Articulture gardens. So come early, relax, look around. Have a great time!
Wine and Topo Chico will be provided along with some light snacks. The series is free, but you must RSVP as space is limited. (And if you RSVP early, but later discover you can't make it, please let us know so we can open up your seat.)
If weather turns nasty, we'll have a rain date set aside for Thursday, 11/30.
