Building: a Panel

October 17, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The word “building“ is inherently at once both the action of creating and the object of its creation. We begin with nothing, design by pushing and pulling, adding and subtracting, while amassing the elements to create the structure until we have an object that literally has to stand. This panel discussion explores the many sides of building.

Moderator: Robert Balder, Director of Planning & Urban Design at Gensler and Executive Director at Cornell University College of Architecture, Art and Planning in NYC
