Architect Annabelle Selldorf in conversation with Justin Davidson


About the Program

We are thrilled to announce a series of four conversations with prominent architects about the state of design of cultural spaces, moderated by New York Magazine critic Justin Davidson. In honor of and thanks to the bequest of Don Powell, notable architect and dear member of The Arts Club, this series delves into knotty questions about the opportunities and challenges created by a post-pandemic, climate-challenged, and socially conscious environment.

Third in the Don Powell Distinguished Architect Series, we welcome principal and design lead of Selldorf Architects, Annabelle Selldorf. Selldorf has overseen museum projects such as the expansion and enhancement of The Frick Collection in New York, the redesign of the Sainsbury Wing and public realm of the National Gallery London, the expansion of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and the revitalization of the Hirshhorn Museum with SOM, among others. With New York Magazine critic Justin Davidson, she delves into questions about the state of design of cultural spaces.
