The City College of New York’s Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture presents “Landing Studio: It Still Takes 12 Days,” an exhibition of design work opening Thursday, Sept. 24 through April 15, 2016. The opening reception, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sept. 24, includes a lecture by Dan Adams and Marie Law Adams, Landing Studio’s principal founders, in the Spitzer School’s Sciame Lecture Hall. The lecture starts at 6:30 p.m.
 
The exhibit will be on display 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday in the Atrium Gallery. It is free and open to the public.
 
“The exhibition focuses on two moments in global industrial production: the translation of natural processes into industry and the intersection of industry and the city,” said Julio Salcedo-Fernandez, chair of the Spitzer School. “It highlights the necessity to maintain an expansive understanding of the urban condition and its disparate but often synergetic realms and protocols.”
 
He further noted that the exhibit resonates with ongoing research at the Spitzer School which, in addition, probes the urban and ecological conditions in all their overlapping dimensions. 
 
“We are particularly well poised to undertake such an endeavor. We are the only school offering architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and sustainability degrees at a major research university in the larger region,” added Salcedo-Fernandez.
