R+L SPEAK ON CIVIC & DOMESTIC DESIGN WITH DWELL

10/10/14

Dwell sat down with Lyn Rice & Astrid Lipka this afternoon for the talk/panel discussion Between Civic and Residential Architecture today at Dwell on Design NY. R+L's talk explored the blurred intersection of civic and residential space, addressing both civic work's increasing tendency to incorporate domestic characteristics and urban dwellings' demand for more communal space. R+L was joined on the panel by Vivian Lee of Richard Meier & Partners at 82 Mercer in SoHo where 5,000 members of the design elite gather for innovative installations and onstage discussions centering around public space, urban infrastructure, and more.
