Cocktails & Conversation is a series of dialogues about design that joins an architect with a critic, journalist, curator, or architectural historian to discuss current architecture design issues. AIA Gold Medalist Moshe Safdie, FAIA, will join with author and curator Donald Albrecht to discuss the state of American projects and public works, the potential for innovation with the recently signed $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, and the impressive achievements of implementing large scale projects in other countries.
