AIA Lecture Series

If anyone missed, (like myself) Antero Pietela talk tonight, he will be speaking again on his book, Not in My Neighborhood, during the AIA lunch lecture series on April 28 from noon-1pm. There are also some other interesting lectures in the series as well. The lectures are located in the Johns Hopkins Downtown Center, 10 N. Charles Street. If you don't have class, I suggest checking these out-I'll be there.
