Constructing Practice traces the narratives of 15 firms from around the globe that were established within the past 10 years. The daylong symposium features case studies and dialogues on designing, establishing, and maintaining a practice. The speakers reflect various approaches in responding to particular regional conditions and the expanding definition of architecture.
Organized by Professor Juan Herreros with Enrique Walker, the symposium hosts 15 international firms to discuss their respective contexts, ambitions, and influences relevant to their founding and early years, followed by joint discussions on their experiences and strategies.
