Expanding technology makes our physical world more accessible. Inspired by our global practice, the Yale Women in Architecture Committee invited Louise to organize and moderate a video conversation with four Yale women alumni who discussed their diverse international architectural experiences.
Louise joined the fourth panel of the 2019 TORCH Mentorship program to share her experiences of engaging in communities. The discussion was lively and interactive, which made for a stimulating conversation all around.
We are thrilled that Louise is included in Breaking Ground-Architecture by Women edited by Jane Hall for Phaidon Press. The book is a groundbreaking visual survey of architecture designed by women from the early twentieth century to the present day.
Louise was delighted to participate in 8 hours of scintillating conversation at a think tank about how potential disruptive transportation will influence the architectural building of community in Newburgh, New York. She joined a group of city planners, transportation experts, We Company thinkers and the Newburgh City Councilman for a deep dive into critical issues that all address the pivotal question “How do we want to live?”
We are thrilled to be the People’s Choice winner of the Frame Awards in the Social Category, an award that celebrated multi-national projects that demonstrate a positive political, social and cultural impact on our communities. Louise is flew to Amsterdam to participate in what was a very exciting Frame Lab conference about the vanguard of spaces and places at the forefront of new technology and humanity. We were honored to be a part of this.
"A Provocative Paradox" was a wonderful evening at the The National Arts Club dedicated to a discussion of JoAnn Locktov's award-winning book, Dream of Venice Architecture. Louise enjoyed moderating a spirited panel including architects James Biber and Max Levy, and Cynthia Davidson of Log.
Louise participated in an insightful discussion about women in practice with students and Yale alumni, Celia Imrey, Robin Osler, Amina Blacksher, Brandt Knapp and Kimberly Brown. The conversation was both interactive and informative and will lead to further dialogue going forward.
Louise was delighted to discuss our work and chat with Kimberly Ackert about issues relating to her Parsons seminar, "Looking Beyond the Glass Ceiling" at the Parsons School of Design on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.
Louise was delighted to contribute an essay to JoAnn Locktov's insightful book about the mystery of Venice. Along with essays by Tadao Ando, Massimiliano Fuksas, and Witold Rybczynski, among others, and photographs by Riccardo De Cal, Louise’s thoughts dissect the aesthetic wonders of this contradictory city.
It was a lovely evening at Architectural Record’s 125th Anniversary Gala. What was really memorable was Louise’s conversation with architectural critic, Sarah Goldhagen and Mildred Schmertz, an early editor-in-chief of Architectural Record. Mildred discussed in detail the early days of the magazine.
We are thrilled to have our 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale installation “Active Voice” published by Inexhibit magazine.
Taking into consideration the particulars of time and place, architects today must engage in active conversations with communities to help give definition to their existence. "Active Voice”", our installation at the "Time Space Existence" exhibition at the 2016 Venice Biennale, is a snapshot of one such conversation. We engaged in a six-year dialogue that produced a series of architectural projects, including prefabricated classroom "buildings" that were integral to the creation of the Staten Island Community Charter School. Families of 86% of the students in the school live below the poverty line.
