TALK - Szenasy, Design Advocate

By Center / Architecture + Design (other events)

Friday, October 17 2014 4:00 PM 6:00 PM EDT

Part of DesignPhiladelphia 2014!

Join us for a “round-robin” conversation with Susan S. Szenasy, longtime Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of Metropolis Magazine and; Hilary Jay, Director of the Center for
Architecture; and Joseph G. Brin, architect, artist, and writer. A book signing of Szenasy, Design Advocate will follow.

For more than 30 years, Susan S. Szenasy’s voice has resonated as an editor-in-chief, writer, teacher, moderator, filmmaker and lecturer. In all of these roles, her advocacy for ethical, sustainable, human-centered design has been her guiding light. Known for decades as the editor-in-chief (and now publisher) of Metropolis Magazine, one of the most influential design magazines in the world, Szenasy has led the charge on issues ranging from universal design to emerging trends of consumer excess, from design for disassembly to the recovery of Lower Manhattan’s communities after 9/11, from design education to the social and environmental impacts of the buildings and products we manufacture.

This event is part of a series of national conversations exploring issues of design advocacy and ethics and celebrating Szenasy, Design Advocate, a new title published by Metropolis Books and distributed by ARTBOOK | D.A.P.

Free; advanced registration required.
