The Parrish Art Museum is launching a new series where architects can exchange ideas and insights with leading practitioners and thinkers from myriad disciplines and propose design solutions for cultural, infrastructural, environmental, social, and geopolitical challenges.

"Inter-Sections: The Architect in Conversation" brings together diverse voices, communities, and interest groups concerned with building and designing for a vibrant and sustainable future on the East End and beyond.

Preston Scott Cohen, who recently designed the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, will talk with Director Terrie Sultan, who oversaw the new building by Herzog & de Meuron, about considerations when building for art—including cultural context and tensions, audiences and collections, as well as new roles of museums and unconventional approaches to presenting art. The talk will be followed by a signing of Cohen’s book Lightfall: Genealogy of a Museum: Paul and Herta Amir Building, Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
