Another error!

I mistakenly left out of the print version of the Times art calendar (which is why it's a good idea sometimes to check the online calendar on the homepage) the upcoming Architecture and Design Network lecture set for Tuesday, Nov. 13, at the Darragh Center. So here's notice: Vincent James and Jennifer Yoos, principals of the architecture firm VJAA in Minneapolis, will talk about their approach to architecture and environmental design. The lecture begins at 6 p.m. after a 5:30 p.m. reception.

VJAA received the American Institute of Architects' 2012 Architecture Firm Award and James and Yoos are this year’s John G. Williams Distinguished Visiting Professors for the Fay Jones School of Architecture at the University of Arkansas.

Among their recently completed projects: the Hostler Student Center at the American University of Beirut and a Guesthouse, Chapterhouse and Chapel at Saint John’s Abbey and University (see image above). They are now at work on the new Walker Library in Minneapolis, the Welland International Flatwater Center for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games, a house prototype for Habitat for Humanity (Detroit)/Public Architecture (San Francisco) and the new African Art Galleries reinstallation at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

The lecture is the second in the Architecture and Design Network's Art of Architecture lecture series this season.
