The first program will feature Peter Black, chairman of the department of architecture and planning at the Catholic University of America, and James Elliott, director of the University Art Museum at UC Berkeley, as moderators and Frank Gehry, Max Gordon, Cesar Pelli and Norman Pfieffer as panelists.
The second program will feature Steven D. Ehrich as moderator and Thom Mayne, Jill I. Cole, Rob Quigley, Johannes Van Tilburg and Joseph D'Urso as panelists.
Admission to the programs is free, but it is necessary to register at the door for Westweek.
