Join us for this special Halloween-themed Architectural Sessions. Host Maziar Behrooz and guests John Zissovici, Viola Rouhani, AIA, Jee Won Kim, and James Merrell will discuss a specific influence that has “haunted” their practice and exerted a unique influence over a particular project.

Zissovici, associate professor of architecture at Cornell University College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, Ithaca, NY, will speak about his design of a photographer’s studio that adapts to changing light conditions. Rouhani, of Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects in Bridgehampton, NY, will discuss the importance of problem solving relative to the design of a modern house in Amagansett. Jee Won Kim, Principal of Jee Won Kim Architects, P.C. in New York, NY will talk about his collaboration with artist Hans Breder on an installation. Merrell, who founded James Merrell Architecture, Sag Harbor, NY, in 1988, will discuss the design of a modern house on the East End that references Palladian villas.

Architectural Sessions is the ongoing conversation series presented by AIA Peconic and the Parrish.

Friday Nights are made possible, in part, by the generous support of The Corcoran Group and Bridgehampton National Bank.
