Virtual World Tour – New York Edition
Since November 2020, we are taking Virtual World Tour and “visiting” selected countries around the world to meet some of their most relevant architects. Now that we can not meet you and our speakers at a fully booked auditorium, we will bring the speakers directly to your homes and offices!
On Thursday, March 4th, 2021 live from 13:00 to 14:30 EST (19:30 CET), we will “visit” New York and meet two of its most remarkable architects.
The two following NY-based architects will talk on our virtual stage about their personal experiences and important creative periods in their lives and, as always at “AnA“, none of their projects may be mentioned:
