Mark SEXTON, FAIA
Thursday, 7 pm
Magnolia Theatre, West Village

Working for three decades in the demanding architectural culture of Chicago,
the firm of Krueck and Sexton has set a standard by melding a lively and generous
vision with craft and precision. Among their major works is Crown Fountain, done
with artist Jaume Plensa, a centerpiece of Chicago's magnificent Millenium Park
along Lake Michigan. Educated at IIT, Mark Sexton brings to today's work ideas
and attention that reflect Mies' long legacy.

“New Humanism: Taking a Stand—A Report on Ghost 13”
Tuesday, 6:30 pm
Dallas Center for Architecture,
1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 100

Within the context of New Technologies in Architecture—new materials, new
geometries, and new structural strategies—Ghost 13 took a stand on the
principles of Place, Craft and Community.  Initiated as a retrospective of
Brian Mackay-Lyons’ innovative 12 years of physically engaged, yet
theoretically driven, architectural production on his stunning site west of
Halifax, Ghost 13 listed among its participants some of the most talented
architects practicing today. Benchmarked by presentations from Kenneth
Frampton, Juhani Pallasmaa and Glenn Murcutt, the week of inspiring
discussions naturally lead to speculations about the larger agenda.  Was
Ghost 13 merely a thoughtful reflection on beautiful architecture or did it
make a claim for New Humanism within the context of an exceedingly
technically driven culture. You decide, as attendants discuss the issues
explicitly, and implicitly, generated by the conference.
