LOWER EAST SIDE—Registration is still open for “Re-designing Essex Crossing,” an 8-session course at the Abrons Art Center that begins on February 3. Students in the course will critically examine the redevelopment of SPURA and also design alternate proposals for the site. The course is being taught by an architect in the employ of Annabelle Selldorf’s firm. Is it fair to assume that the first lady of classy architecture and design does not approve of the megaproject?
