Design Diplomacy: A New Look for US Embassies

With its recently-inaugurated Design Excellence Program for embassies, the US State Department has been commissioning some of the country’s leading architects and designers to develop a new generation of overseas facilities that will be as noteworthy for their design as for their functionality, sustainability, and security. Casey Jones, director of design excellence, US Department of State Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations and the US General Services Administration; Richard Maimon, FAIA, principal, Kieran Timberlake; and Chris Banks, principal, Gensler, DC, will tell the story behind the program and show how it is being carried out in our new embassy in London.

NYSID Auditorium, 170 East 70th Street, NYC. Tickets: $12 general public, $10 seniors and non-NYSID students, NYSID students are free.
