The Strib's take on UM's recent design conference
Forget about the strikingly modern Walker Art Center, the blue Guthrie sinking into the dusk on a cold winter evening or even the impressive presence of the Minneapolis Public Library. What's really important in architecture is what happens between the buildings. That's the argument the Star Tribune editorial page took away from the Design and its Publics: Curators, Critics and Historians, a two-day seminar at the University of Minnesota last weekend. The newspaper cites efforts by Minneapolis and St. Paul to improve walking on Washington Avenue and storefronts on University Avenue.
