Join us for an engaging discussion that delves into architectural design through the lens of five distinguished architects — and friends. Part reunion, part retrospective, their stories will reveal the architect’s journey in finding inspiration, forming a perspective on design and delivering beauty in function and form to the built environment.

Your hosts will reflect on their most memorable projects, showcasing how design philosophy and innovative thinking fuels their approach and influences their perspectives.

Discover how and where they draw inspiration, from the natural landscape to the newest technology to their daily commute and more. They’ll also explore the intersection of art and functionality — striking a balance between aesthetic expression and practical design considerations.

Through lively anecdotes and thought-provoking insights among long-standing friends with a passion for architecture, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of its complexity and connection to the world we inhabit. Whether you’re an aspiring architect, a seasoned professional or design enthusiast, this event will give you deeper appreciation of the transformative power of design.
