Please join us on May 15 for a salon evening with Cathleen McGuigan, Editor in Chief of Architectural Record, and Eva Hagberg, author, educator, writer and media strategist. Both critics shape how we understand architecture, both women are active in the ongoing discussion of the social and personal costs of male domination of the profession, and both have particular interest in the works of Eero Saarinen and his relationship with Aline. It will be an intimate setting, with a reception and plenty of lively discussion. Please consider becoming a “Friend” for special access at bwaf.org/friends.
