Avi Friedman Tonight!

April, 27th 2010. 7pm Author Avi Friedman launches his latest book:

A Place In Mind

A Place in Mind: The Search for Authenticity is the result of Avi Friedman's worldwide quest for successful environments where people congregate and feel comfortable. Whether he writes of the conviviality of a teahouse in Istanbul; the public art of Nunavut's capital, Iqaluit; the serenity of Assisi; or the architectural harmony of neighbourhoods in London and Amsterdam, Avi Friedman conveys his excitement at discovering people-friendly places—antidotes to social isolation. In each instance, the question is asked: why do these places work?

Dr. Avi Friedman is the co-founder of the Affordable Homes Program at the McGill School of Architecture, where he is a Professor. The recipient of several research and design awards, Avi Friedman has published extensively in both academic and trade publications. Wallpaper Magazine included Avi Friedman in its list of ten people "most likely to change the way we live."
