the third and final michigan debate on urbanism has been moved from next monday evening april 12 to tuesday april 20 at 5:30 in the A&A auditorium.

peter eisenman will present work of his office, which is being billed as representative of “post urbanism” and steven peterson and barbara littenberg will counter with work representative of “re-urbanism.” it follows on the first two debates, which were on “everyday” and “new” urbanism respectively.

in this ongoing battle of urbanisms with pre-fixes (as opposed to prix fixe), they will each show several projects, including their entries in the ground zero competition in lower manhattan. (they were 2 of the seven invited teams, with libeskind studio the ultimate winner.) prof. roy strickland, a fellow new yorker, will moderate.

as always, the prixe fix of admission is zero, free. so, come early for a seat.”
