Adam Caruso of Caruso St John and Brigitte Shim of Shim-Sutcliffe Architects address topics they consider to be of vital importance and urgency in contemporary architectural practice. Their individual presentations are followed by a conversation moderated by CCA Director Mirko Zardini.
The Urgency series reflects the CCA’s ongoing exploration of critical issues facing architecture and contemporary society. This is the third annual presentation after the 2007 discussion with Rem Koolhaas and Peter Eisenman and the 2008 discussion with Greg Lynn and Yung Ho Chang. Urgency is a free public program held in conjunction with the 2009 CCA Soirée.
