The conference features the recently built work of 10 ground-breaking 
architects, selected from an open, international call for submissions: 51N4E 
(Brussels), Barkow Leibinger (Berlin), C+S architects (Treviso), LAN (Paris), 
MOS (New York City), Neil M. Denari Architects (Los Angeles), OFFICE Kersten 
Geers, David Van Severen (Brussels), Preston Scott Cohen (Cambridge), Reiser + 
Umemoto (New York City) and UNStudio (Amsterdam). These architects will be 
joined by four architecture critics—Sam Jacob (London), Sylvia Lavin (Los 
Angeles), Emmanuel Petit (New Haven) and Sarah Whiting (Houston)—to discuss 
architectural ideas, what it takes to build them, and how to measure the 
cultural value of architecture.
