Louise was delighted to participate in this special event, part of the Cocktails & Conversation series sponsored by the AIANY Center for Architecture, a sequence of dialogues about design that joins an architect with a critic, journalist, or architectural historian to discuss current architectural topics and process.

Louise’s team has participated in the renowned Venice Architectural Biennale since 2012, and their work is part of the 2021 Biennale opening on May 22nd with the theme “How Will We Live Together?”.

In this conversation with Martha Thorne, current dean of the IE School of Architecture & Design in Madrid, Spain and former Executive Director of the Pritzker Architecture Prize since 2005, Braverman reflected on the impact of the Biennale on her practice and the shaping of exhibitions and installations responding to global themes.
