Utopias do not exist.
If you’ve tuned in to Curbed’s hit podcast, Nice Try! Utopian, you’ve heard host Avery Trufelman echo this sentiment over and over, in episodes covering everything from the suburbs of Levittown to the fascinating research facility Biosphere 2. Now, you can see her explain exactly why during a bonus live taping on Tuesday, August 6, at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.
Avery will be in conversation with Caity Weaver of the New York Times, and the two will dig into humanity’s obsession with the “perfect” living environment—and the question of why utopia is an impossible dream to execute.
The event will be held at Buttenwieser Hall in the 92nd Street Y, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Tickets start at $35 and are available now at 92y.org/curbed. Get them before they’re gone!
