In Our Time: A Year of Architecture in a Day is a symposium devoted to the most exciting and critical spatial projects of 2017. The event brings together international architects, artists, curators, theorists, and filmmakers, who were selected to present one new project—whether a building, a book, an artwork, or an exhibition—considered to be among the most engaging and relevant of the past year. The event consists of fast-paced presentations on the selected “Projects of the Year”; a conversation with a creative leader at IKEA led by Beatrice Galilee, Daniel Brodsky Associate Curator of Architecture and Design in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Met; and a panel discussion, “In Our Future: Radical Design Education,” moderated by Sandra Jackson-Dumont, Frederick P. and Sandra P.
