On Thursday, September 30, Paul Rudolph: Lower Manhattan Expressway, an exhibition organized by the Drawing Center and the Cooper Union's Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, opens at the college's Houghton Gallery. Rudolph's drawings of a city that might have been—battles between Jane Jacobs and her Soho-based band of development refuseniks and Mayor John Lindsay's city-planning cadre killed the roadway project in 1970—combine visionary thinking and sensitivity to the preexisting character of urban space. In their two-part article on the forgotten urbanism of the Lindsay administration, "He Is Fresh and Everyone Else Is Tired," published in issue 6, Ian Volner and Matico Josephson describe how Rudolph's "massed, towering forms respond to the scale and shape of the East River bridges beyond, as well as to the skyscrapers of Lower Manhattan." Many of those drawings will now be on public view for the first time. On Saturday, October 23, at 2 p.m., Volner will lead a walking tour along the would-be route of the LME, beginning at the southwest corner of Canal Street and Bowery.
