Join Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects at their office for drinks, informal conversation, and a behind the scenes look at their ongoing work. This is the third night of the new Architectural League series, First Friday, a monthly opportunity for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings will feature happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.
For over 30 years, Tod Williams and Billie Tsien have worked together in New York City and in 1986 they founded Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects. They are known for residential and institutional projects, which pay careful attention to context, detail, and the subtleties of materials. Their body of work includes The American Folk Art Museum in New York, Neurosciences Institute in La Jolla, California, Cranbrook Natatorium in Michigan, and Skirkanich Hall at the University of Pennsylvania.
Current work includes a new museum for the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, a performing and visual arts center at the University of Chicago, a multi-disciplinary dialogue center at Bennington College, the Asia Society headquarters in Hong Kong, an information technology campus in Mumbai, two new skating rinks in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, a dormitory at Haverford College, and a nano-technology laboratory at Princeton University.
This program is free and open to League members. Members may bring one guest whom they would like to introduce to League programs. RSVP required to email@example.com.
