In celebration of Archtober happening this month in NYC, the Ford Motor Company and the American Institute of Architects New York (AIANY) chapter are teaming up to bring us a brand new panel discussion and webcast focused on resilient design. ’Design With a Purpose‘ is the third in Ford’s illuminating webcast series which has hosted talks between several of today’s leading architects and automotive designers. This month’s webcast will feature high-profile architects and builders from across New York, including Erik Churchill, project manager at SHoP Construction; Frank J. Sciame Jr., Hon. AIANY Chapter and CEO/chairman of Sciame Construction Company; Ford’s VP of Global Design J Mays; and moderator Rick Bell, FAIA, the executive director of the AIANY. This panel of though-leaders will discuss how designers can create strong, functional buildings that are resilient enough to endure the test of time, much like New York City‘s famous skyscrapers. We’ll be live streaming this discussion on Inhabitat.com on October 3rd, so mark your calendars!
We want your participation in this conversation! You can join in by submitting your questions in advance below in the comments, or during the live panel by tweeting questions to @Ford and @Inhabitat with the hashtag #FordArchitecture! We’ll be sending Inhabitat t-shirts to the selected question submitters, so send us good ones!
