Treatise: Why Write Alone?
Panel Discussion & Book Launch
SAT, MAR 28
Please join us for a panel discussion and book launch to conclude our current exhibition and publication project Treatise: Why Write Alone?
On March 28th, Jimenez Lai will be joined by representatives from all fourteen offices to debate the collective and individual stakes that have emerged from this temporary allegiance of designers. All together for the first time, the participants will discuss their own work as well as the perceived outcomes of this project for the participants and within the architectural field.
RSVP is required for the morning and afternoon panel sessions. Please note: Seating will be very limited, and event entry will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. RSVP does not guarantee entry, so please plan to arrive early.
