It’s been a few days, but we’d like to recap our Thursday night. First, Dwell Magazine‘s 5th anniversary party at Armani Casa (very chunky and shockingly inelegant furniture–not that we’d turn it down) where we did not see a single person we recognized. On to the AIA’s Party@the Center where a good number of people came straight from the very expensive Heritage Ball and a few of them fell down. Repeatedly. To eighties music.
Most-gossip-mongered story from the Ball: Jeanne-Claude taking the stage and yelling at everyone for being “un-American” for not paying attention to the video everyone seemed to assume was background entertainment and totally talked over.
People who we saw: Fred Schwartz and Tracey Hummer, en fuego as always; WTC memorial designer Michael Arad and LMDC press officer Joanna Rose; ArchNewsNows-er Kristen Richards; Architect’s Newspaper editors Cathy Ho and Anne Guiney; that dude from Snohetta; and then, of course, since no party is complete without him, James Sanders.
Architects. More like drunkitects.
