Mundaneum XIII 2019: Pan Americas

 

Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture
141 Convent Avenue
New York, NY 10031
Sciame Auditorium (107)

 

The Spitzer School of Architecture at City College of New York and the Costa Rican Foundation for Design, Art and Architecture (Fund_ARQ) are delighted to announce Mundaneum XIII 2019: Pan Americas, an intensive series of talks and conversations exploring points of both intersection and conflict in design and planning in the erstwhile "New World." Over a day and a half, a group of Pan American architects, designers and activists will present their work not to seek "common ground," but to reveal the complex interactions and inflections of the manifold architectures and environments of the Americas and to spark lively and ongoing conversation, cooperation and debate about their intertwined histories and futures.
