On June 28th, the KPF Senior Associate Principal and co-chair of the AIANY Global Dialogues Committee will lead a discussion as part of a symposium on Architecture in India.
Rutger will moderate the second panel of the day, “Global Practice, Local Outlook: American Architects Working in India,” alongside committee co-chair Gregory Haley. The panel will feature Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi, Co-Founders of Weiss/Manfredi; Diana Kellogg, Founder, Diana Kellogg Architects; and Paul Schulhof, Partner, Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects.
Organized into three sessions with two keynote presentations, the symposium, “IndiaNow: Architecture in the Contemporary Landscape,” examines the country’s architecture over the last three decades. With India’s recent history defined by economic and socio-cultural shifts from socialism to a market economy, the program seeks to look at both the work of internationalist modernists and regional architects to explore reasonings behind public perception and factors influencing its contemporary architectural development.
Organized by the AIANY Global Dialogues Committee, the symposium will be held on June 28th at the Triveni Kala Sangam Cultural Centre in New Delhi, India at 6:30 PM IST. Viewers can also watch the event for free at 9:00 AM EDT. Learn more about the event here.
