CannonDesign Lecture for Excellence in Architecture and Engineering: Tod Williams & Billie Tsien

  • Wednesday, October 24, 2018 • 6:00 pm
  • Steinberg Auditorium, Washington University in St. Louis

Architects Tod Williams & Billie Tsien will deliver the CannonDesign Lecture for Excellence in Architecture and Engineering as part of the Public Lecture Series. Williams and Tsien began working together in 1977 and founded their New York Architecture Office in 1986. Their studio focuses on work for institutions such as schools, museums, and not-for-profits. A sense of rootedness, light, texture, detail, and—most of all—experience, are at the heart of what they design. Notable projects include The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, Asia Society Hong Kong Center, and Lefrak Center in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. They are currently designing the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park, Chicago.

The 6:30pm Lecture will be proceeded by a 6:00pm Reception.
