Hamilton Anderson Associated hosts ongoing lectures at the Johanson Charles Gallery near Eastern Market. The lectures most frequently dance around the topic of design, urbanism, art and architecture related to Detroit. The next lecture in the series is titled â€œTHE CITY OF DESIRE, CITY OF POSSIBILITIESâ€ by Lars Graebner– an architect and lecturer at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. From the website, “GrÃ¤bner believes Detroit has valuable unrecognized assets and possibilities for a new urban environment we may not realize. In this lecture he will present realized examples, which could create a desire for a socially, economically, culturally and environmentally sustainable city â€“ a city, which will look quite different from the one we anticipate.” The talk is taking place October 13, 2009 at 6pm. Yep, pencil that one on in. More info here. No excuses.
