Innovators: Building Design and Construction
Tuesday, May 6 at 6: 30 pm
The Guastavinos were peerless innovators of building design and construction in the early 20th century—who are the Guastavinos of today? Join us for a panel discussion with contemporary visionaries in the fields of architecture and engineering, where new developments driven by 3-D computer printing; prefabrication and modular design; integrated environmental systems; and structural innovation are changing the fabric of 21st-century life. Jill Lerner, Principal at Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF) and 2013 President of the AIA New York Chapter, moderates a panel discussion with architects Corie Sharples (SHoP Architecture) and Marianne Kwok (KPF), and engineers Valentine A. Lehr (Lehr Consultants International) and Guy Nordenson (Guy Nordenson Associates).
Presented in conjunction with Palaces for the People and co-sponsored by the AIA New York Chapter.
Free for Museum members; $12 students/seniors; $16 general public.
