The Skyscraper Museum is hosting a new lecture series on creative design approaches for tall towers and how these structures can support rapid urbanization and sustainable living. The first of the "What's Up?" talks, on Monday, October 15, will examine various solutions offered by the decorated Singapore-based architecture firm WOHA.
The firm, founded in 1994, has built structures throughout Asia and has become a tour-de-force in the high-rise residential sector. Their signature technique—blanketing facades with an outer layer of vegetation—has led to many awards and international attention. WOHA’s founder, Richard Hassell, will discuss the firm’s current work, from Mumbai to Bangkok, on Oct. 15 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City. Cathleen McGuigan, RECORD's Editor in Chief, will lead a discussion following the talk.
