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.

a conference about how ideas become buildings. Providing this forum for
architects from around the world to exchange ideas on exceptional architecture
is an extraordinary opportunity," said Ted Hathaway, Chief Executive Officer,
