Thursday Lecture: "Type Talk: The Essential Structure of our Roman Alphabet" @ 6:30pm


















Join us this Thursday at 6:30pm at Eleventh Street Arts for first of two lectures related to our our current Art of Architecture exhibit!

Lecture Series:
Thursday, March 9, 6:30-7:30pm
"Type Talk: The Essential Structure of Our Roman Alphabet" by Seth Weine
Typography & lettering are enormous topics, and one could hardly cover even the "A-B-C's" of them---but we can start by looking at the basic structure of our letters: the Roman alphabet. Seth will take us through its "skeleton", and also address other font-o-philic matters.

Thursday, March 30, 6:30-7:30pm
"Hand Drawing for a House Design: Process & Composition" by Sam Roche
This talk will explore how some architects have used hand drawing to develop general concepts into finished building designs. We will focus not only on the hand-drawn design process itself but also on some compositional ideas that are common to painting, sculpture, and architecture which this process can emphasize and develop.
