Minneapolis talk…

Many thanks to Meghan Elliott and Gregory Donofrio at Preservation Design Works for sponsoring my talk in Minneapolis last night. In addition to teaching old buildings new tricks, PVN is committed to building connections in the Twin Cities that can help good projects get done. The crowd was a great one–true to their mission, it drew engineers, architects, lawyers, realtors, etc., which made for a great Q&A session afterwards. (And having a big contingent of ISU alums helped, too…) The host venue, The Engine Room, was an inspired choice for a venue, and worth checking out as a preservation success in progress.

On the road today, too, talking plate glass at SOM in a few minutes. A good day to drive across Wisconsin, and despite 35 miles of construction on I-90 I made it into town early enough to poke into the Art Institute, which has a lurvely set of Niemeyer sketches on display, and a stunning show of paper works by Zarina in the Modern Wing…
