Two Studio-X network events that might be of interest this week:

For those of you in or near Mumbai, India, on Friday, August 10th, architect and "aerospace entrepreneur" Susmita Mohanty—previously seen on BLDGBLOG here—will be discussing the design possibilities for architecture in lunar environments. The talk takes place at Studio-X Mumbai, it starts at 6:30pm, and it can be found at Kitab Mahal, 192 D.N. Road, Fort, Mumbai 400001.

Back here in New York, meanwhile, on Saturday, August 11th, Matthew Coolidge, director of the Center for Land Use Interpretation, will present his recent (and ongoing) research into the landscape infrastructures of the Meadowlands. Some of you might remember this post on the Meadowlands from two summers ago; if not, it's a good starting point to pique your curiosity before Coolidge's talk.

Coolidge will show a "slideshow safari into the industrial swamps of the Meadowlands... a superlative antipode to the great urban spaces that surround it," at Studio-X NYC, 180 Varick Street, Suite 1610, 16th floor, kicking off at 7:30pm. Free and open to the public; no RSVP required.
