OMA's Reinier de Graaf in conversation with Patrik Schumacher

Fri 29 Sep 2017


Reinier de Graaf in conversation with Patrik Schumacher about his new book, Four Walls and a Roof, The Complex Nature of a Simple Profession. 

Written as a series of essays, Four Walls and a Roof focuses on the architectural profession, giving an honest portrayal of the divides between ideology and practice, the particular challenges of age versus experience, the realities of working internationally and the effects of economy. Patrik will interrogate Reinier on the why of his book, the deeper meaning and its relevance for the profession in general. There will be the opportunity for the audience to ask questions to both speakers and the possibility to continue the discussion over drinks. Signed books will be available to purchase.

Reinier de Graaf is a partner at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture.

Patrik Schumacher is the director of Zaha Hadid Architects. 

Please arrive at 6:00 pm for registration. The event will start at 6:30 pm.
