On Monday 17 October David Chipperfield will give the 10th annual Arthur Rosenblatt Memorial Lecture, an annual lecture on excellence in museum design hosted by the American Institute of Architects New York (AIANY) Cultural Facilities Committee. The lecture will centre on museum projects and look at the changing role of the museum.
Arthur Rosenblatt was the Vice President for Architecture and Planning at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for 19 years and director of the Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the lecture series was set up to honour his long-term commitment to museum design. Notable former speakers include Richard Meier, Mosche Safdie, Todd Williams and Billie Tsien.
The event will be co-chaired by Scott Briggs and Heidi Kippenhan of the AIANY and hosted by the Center for Architecture in New York.
