Designing Relationships

Center for Architecture


Join us for our first Summer in the City evening roundtable discussion series about design relationships, starting with architect couples. Architect Couples was inspired by the joint Gold Medal awarded to Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi, following a widely-published petition. As a result, the AIANY Architecture Dialogue Committee began thinking about work/life balance and the struggle architects face to find their design voice while developing long-term relationships. Couples in all stages of their careers build practices and build families. Panel participants will discuss the challenges they faced as designers and couples. Speakers: Caterina Roiatti, AIA, and Robert Traboscia, TRA Studio Hayes Slade, AIA, and James Slade, FAIA, Slade Architecture Anna Torriani, AIA, and Lorenzo Pagnamenta, AIA, APT Architecture Moderator: Hana Kassem, AIA, Director, KPF Cocktail designed by: Eben Klemm Organized by: AIANY Architecture Dialogue Committee and CultureNow
