The symposium marks the release of the 11 Architects + 12 Conversations issue of PRAXIS: a journal of writing and building. The moderated discussion will invite audience participation in an open dialogue that explores shared and contested territory among this emerging generation of practices.
The symposium, 'Conversations: Continued', brings together 10 Young Architectural Practices: MOS, NArchitects, WORKac, PATTERNS, Aranda/Lasch, Productora, FAR, Ciro Najle, The Living, and Howeler +Yoon with two critics, Timothy Hyde and Lucia Allais. The event continues the more formal discussion begun in PRAXIS 11, 11 Architects/12 Conversations, by bringing the firms together in a shared conversation, broadening the issues at stake, and sharing the material with a wider architectural and public audience.
PRAXIS will also take this occasion to celebrate the long anticipated 2010 PRAXIS 11+12 double issue release with cocktails and a preview of Solid Objectives - Idenburg Liu's Pole Dance, the winner of the MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program.
