The Dilemma of Male Space


6/2/06 4:00pm-5:00pm
Family rooms instead of dens. Clean garages. Women in cigar bars and boxing clubs. American females have commandeered, or at least infiltrated, nearly every part of the private and public realm. After the terrible centuries when interior space was overwhelmingly male, a balance was gradually achieved, culminating with the house plans of the first half of the 20th century. Now has the balance tipped too far? If the New Urbanism provides a place for everyone, should it also program specifically for male activity, however abhorrent? Are sheds and rear alleys enough? Join us for discussion and photographs of Male Space in the 21st century.
