Cocktails & Conversation: Tom Kundig

January 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This series of dialogues about design joins an architect with a critic, journalist, curator, or architectural historian to discuss current architecture design issues. Friday night is not “Friday Night” without the appropriate beverage. We’ll provide a custom-crafted cocktail—one inspired by the architect’s work and created especially for this event.
