This Thursday at 7pm two things will be happening at the same time. My economics test and a lecture by architect Wolf D. Prix at the Cooper Union. Having never heard of this guy (which isn't a surprise), I checked out his site (which has awesome slide shows) and became very interested.
His work merits further research but sadly, I probably won't be in attendance. I assure you though, click that link and check out his sexy buildings. They have a certain, European (German) sleekness; it's his James Bond to my (our) John McClane.
