Patricia Viel of ACPV Architects joins the podcast to discuss designing for public space with the firm’s plaza redesign at 1221 Avenue of the Americas, the responsibility architects have to future generations, and the Bulgari Hotel in Rome, an adaptive reuse project featured in the September 2023 issue of RECORD.

“We strongly believe that there is a responsibility to build in between what has been, what it is, and what it should be. It is a harmony of past and future. The project needs to go through studies in order to reveal the potential of a place. You can also be in contradiction with those potentials. This is because you know what it has been, and why.”
