Today's News - May 31, 2002

After yesterday's solemn finale to the recovery efforts at Ground Zero, it seems fitting to lead today's news with a few upcoming events that focus on the rebuilding of Lower Manhattan. Special programs are being offered by The Municipal Art Society, Van Alen Institute, the Center for Architecture, and the NYU Real Estate Institute. They really are big doings for the Big Apple.

Added food-for-thought is a selection of opinion pieces that include Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown (brought to our attention by an ANN subscriber…thank you!), and Deborah K. Dietsch (a former Editor-in-Chief of Architecture magazine).
