Tod Williams and Billie Tsien have worked together for more than 30 years. In 1986, they officially formed the partnership of Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects, which has received numerous awards, including the 2002 Arup World Architecture Award for the Best Building in the World for their design of the American Folk Art Museum, the first new museum built in New York City in over three decades. Current projects include a new museum for the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, a performing and visual arts center at the University of Chicago, the Asia Society headquarters in Hong Kong, and two new skating rinks in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.
Tickets can be purchased online or at the MCASD front desk in La Jolla and downtown San Diego during regular gallery hours. For more information on upcoming lectures, please visit www.mcasd.org.
