Yesterday, we fêted Metropolis magazine’s thirtieth anniversary at Terminal Warehouse, home to Grimshaw Architects, Tom Colicchio’s ’Wichcraft eatery and several boutiques. In the afternoon Metropolis hosted a panel discussion moderated by Editor-in-Chief Susan Szenasy and sponsored by bathroom furnishings specialist Duravit. The lively “designer summit” included several leading architects, designers and industry experts who addressed issues affecting design today including new technology, innovation and the ever-changing way in which firms and manufacturers do business. Once the evening rolled around, Metropolis, together with Grimshaw, drew quite the crowd to toast the magazine’s big 3-0 mark. Clever and creative vignettes by School of Visual Arts students scattered around the space served as perfect conversation pieces and the party lasted long after the official end time.
