JMA Event at the USAI Lighting Collaboratory

Sep. 16 at the USAI Lighting Collaboratory in New York’s SoHo neighborhood, the firm Jorge Mastropietro Architects hosted an event entitled “Designer As Developer: Building Your Vision, Building New Business.” The focus of the event was a question: Should architects and designers take control of the development, financing and investment process to both achieve breakthrough designs and to take control of their futures?

The discussion was led by Jorge Mastropietro himself and Metropolis magazine’s Susan Szenasy. Here are some photos!
