ADBC, the Architecture and Design Book Club, is an informal event held in public spaces in and around New York City. With book selections ranging from Edith Wharton to science fiction, we focus on how design figures into and suggests new readings of a text. Each meeting features a leading thinker/critic as a special guest discussant. We invite everyone—experts and passers-by alike—to drop by and join us for an hour of conversation and debate.
