Tonight we're gonna have a talk with Toby Barlow who wrote the NYtimes piece which got the media blitzkrieg started around Design99 and some of the other artists working in Detroit.
Toby is also on the board of the cooperative that runs Lafayette that we wrote about earlier. Besides our interest in the organizational aspects of the co-op, the architectural merits of Lafayette park also deserve some attention, a 78 acre (320,000 m2) planned by Mies van der Rohe, Ludwig Hilberseimer and Alfred Caldwell.
more on Lafayette Park at Dwell, and a slideshow
