The event will feature a conversation between Annabelle Selldorf and Rosalie Genevro.
Architectural historian and urbanist Rosalie Genevro has led The Architectural League, a non-profit cultural organization based in New York City, as executive director since 1985. The League’s public programs, publications, exhibitions and research projects present the work of the world’s leading architects as well as emerging talents, and investigate and propose approaches to important issues in the built environment. Ms. Genevro has led initiatives at the League addressing a variety of building types, including housing, schools, and libraries, as well as climate change, among many other topics. She has served as a peer reviewer for the NYC Departments of Design and Construction, City Planning, Cultural Affairs, and Parks and Recreation, and as a critic and juror for many architecture school juries and prize competitions, including the inaugural juries of the Jane Jacobs award of the Rockefeller Foundation and the Women in Architecture award of Architectural Record. Ms. Genevro received an Arts and Letters Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2015. She studied history as an undergraduate at Occidental College, and did graduate work in architectural history at Cornell University.
