The Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts has its official opening this weekend with a Launch Logan Festival, Friday through Sunday, October 12-14, and an October 12th program Beware the Stairs are Always Moving: a conversation with Architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, 6:00 p.m. in the Logan Center's Performance Hall. Read our profile of the building and its architects here.
“I think in life it's generally true,” said architect Tod Williams, “everything's pushing to the more broadly based and generic, kind of universal answers. I think that's the trend of the moment, and I think there's certain places, certain institutions, and people that go against that. We go against that.”
this photo-essay. Williams and Tsien talk to me about about how the building came about, how it works, and the challenges they faced in getting it done. Images, in abundance.
