Renzo Piano, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect behind the first new buildings on Columbia’s Manhattanville campus, will reflect on the role of architecture in creating more inclusive cities. Speaking at the Forum, one of his three Manhattanville buildings, he will discuss how architecture can create more open, permeable neighborhoods, provide arenas for cross-cutting exchanges and opportunities, and enrich civic life. Offering contemplations on democracy and participation alongside examples of his work, Piano will discuss how architecture can address particular needs, while also pointing toward models of thinking and doing that are more generalizable and dynamic.

Co-presented with Columbia World Projects and Columbia University, School of the Arts.
