One of my favorite venues in NYC is the storefront gallery at the NY branch of the American Institute of Architects. It is a not located in a “gallery district” but you may have walked past many times: it can be found on La Guardia Place, which is essential lower Fifth Avenue, below Washington Square Park near the NYU campus, and just above Houston (where SoHo begins, and La Guardia Place becomes “West Broadway”).
If you have not gone in to this glass-fronted building, or looked at their list of upcoming events, you must. Here’s one not to miss!

“NIGHT/SHIFT: Book talk with Lynn Saville
When: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM MONDAY, APRIL 12
Where: At The AIA New York Center for Architecture
In her recent book, Night/Shift, Lynn Saville has captured urban landscapes at twilight and dawn, revealing the stark paradoxes between day and darkness. She will discuss the progression of her work from earlier black and white nocturnes and talk about the surprising occasional ghostlike shadowy figures that have begun to appear in her photographs.
Photographer Lynn Saville was educated at Duke University and Pratt Institute. Among her teachers was Philippe Halsman. Lynn Saville specializes in photographing both cities and rural settings at twilight and dawn, or as she describes it, “the boundary times between night and day.”
Signed copies of Night/Shift will available for purchase following the lecture.
This program is co-sponsored by the Center for Architecture and Neighborhood Preservation Center.”
