This past weekend I had the pleasure of presenting at the Dwell on Design event in New York City.
Dwell on Design was held in an event space in New York’s Soho district at 82 Mercer, a former industrial building with everything you would expect in a Soho building: raw brick walls, 14-foot ceilings, and cast-iron columns. It’s definitely a cool space and a great back drop to showcase some of Dwell’s partners, such as Blu Homes and Marimekko.
I was pleased to have a chance to share Cool Spaces! with a non-architect audience for a change. After all, that was the goal for the project in the first place. The highlight of the event was no doubt the keynote presentation by architect, Daniel Libeskind. He is perhaps best known for a building that he did not ultimately design: the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan.
