It’s that time of year again. The house and streets quiet down as the kids are off to school to get some learning on. This also means another season of good ol’ lecturing not too far from the home base of Cleveland, Ohio. (I was going to start with Kent’s lectures but had to send them an email about getting them as a list instead of just a poster. You can’t text search a poster. Well you can, but I’m not running an OCR for folks who had the list to even make the poster).
I will say this. I am not of fan of Taubman’s new webpage. I understand the OMA/Instagram look is so hawt right now, but I prefer function over hawtness, especially when it comes to web interface. Call me old fashion, but when I’m looking for something, I like to find it easily, not mount a full fledged search and rescue involving hours of manpower, 2 helicopters and someone quoting Tommy Lee Jones “doghouse, henhouse, whorehouse” speech from the fugitive. At least the contents are still found with the 3 little lines in the upper left corner. Why the meat of the site has to be hidden away, I don’t really know. Their lecture list though, with links leading to more information on the speakers? They got that down pat. I LOVE that.
All lectures are free and open to the public, unless noted. All lectures will be held in the Art + Architecture Auditorium, 6:00 PM unless otherwise noted.
