Frames of Reference: New York/Boston

Join CultureNOW, BSA Space, and the Center for Architecture in New York City for a Pecha Kucha–style presentation featuring architects, artists, activists, planners, and designers whose work explores the impact of context on the built environment. Moderated by David Fixler FAIA in Boston and James Russell in New York City, this event will be simulcast live from both cities and consider how historical, cultural, and civic contexts may become the personal frames of reference in any design work.
