I love your website with its beautiful photographs of the Woolworth Building, and I thought you would be interested in an art talk to honor the 90th anniversary of the opening of that New York icon, the Woolworth Building, on April 24, 1913, there will be a definitive short talk on why this structure has been beloved by millions of people: "Can Architecture Have Pride and Humility More Friendly in Us?" The talk will be given on Saturday, April 5th, 2:30 pm at the Aesthetic Realism Foundation, 141 Greene Street, in SoHo (Manhattan), telephone (212) 777-4490, http://www.terraingallery.org/Art-Talks-Schedule.htm
Why the Woolworth Building is so popular is explained by this principle, stated by Eli Siegel, poet, critic, and founder of the philosophy Aesthetic Realism: "All beauty is a making one of opposites, and the making one of opposites is what we are going after in ourselves." This principle has been used as the basis for wide-ranging criticisms of architecture, painting, music, sculpture, the dance that have appeared in newspapers, magazines, and professional journals.
The talk will be given by John Stern, a Columbia graduate with a lifelong care for architecture, cities, geology, and transportation, who was a senior planner and researcher with the Tri-State Regional Planning Commission in New York.
