Architecture Through Film: MY BROOKLYN

Submitted by JoAnn M. Lawrence on Friday, 10/26/2012, at 11:22 AM

Fayerweather Hall Room 113, Amherst College

Director Kelly Anderson’s film is a first-person account of her experience as a Brooklyn “gentrifier.”  When low rents and a burgeoning art scene beckoned in the late 1980s, many moved to the city, and in the years since, it has changed dramatically.  Anderson examines the forces that have changed Brooklyn and whether the qualities that once made it inviting can endure.  She writes, “It seems that no less than the city’s soul is at stake.”

Presented by the Western MA Chapter of the AIA and the Five College Architectual Studies Program.

Film followed by discussion. Free and open to the public.
