Hana Kassem Joins Yeohlee Teng in Conversation About the Intersection Between Fashion and Architecture

On May 29, the KPF Principal will join a panel discussion organized by the AIA NY Women in Architecture Committee to celebrate the designer’s talent, contributions to fashion, and her illustrious career.

At the event, notable New York women architects will showcase Yeohlee’s collections in a runway show and share their appreciation of how Yeohlee’s work resonates with their approach to architecture and design. The architects will then discuss the intersectionality between fashion and architecture, highlighting Yeohlee’s accomplishments and exploring her design philosophy, inspiration, and purpose to “clothe, enhance, engage, empower, and entertain,” similar to how architecture impacts our built environment.

Hana will be joined by Susan Chin, FAIA, Principal, DesignConnects; Sylvia Smith, FAIA, Partner Emerita, FXCollaborative; Biile Tsien, AIA, Founder and Partner, Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects; and Claire Weisz, FAIA, Principal-in-Charge WXY. The panel discussion will be moderated by Heidi Schmitt AIA, Project Architect, Gensler.

The event will take place on Wednesday, May 29 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at FXCollaborative’s office. Learn more and register to attend here.
