Architecture and Diplomacy: Transatlantic Approaches (Panel)


Date: Sep 09, 2014

The architecture of embassies, from their public spaces to their security apparatus and art selection, creates cultural diplomacy through design. Yet as diplomatic needs change over time, how have these buildings—both their functions and the messages they impart—responded to the demands of both security and diplomacy? The presentations and panels of professionals in architecture, history, and government explore the “architecture of diplomacy” across the transatlantic.

A reception and an exhibition of Columbia architecture students’ works will follow the event.
