Creative professionals, like architects and landscape architects, benefit from new experiences outside of their daily office- and client-based routines. For some, it may be a weekly commitment of giving back to the community, while others opt to bicycle across China. Amirah Shahid, SWA Group; Mark Schatz, Field Paoli; Nicholas May, Tom Eliot Fisch; and Lilian Asperin-Clyman, NBBJ, each share an experience that has shaped their outlook, their designs and even their careers. A question-and-answer discussion, moderated by Amanda Walter of Walter Communications, concludes the program. This event is generously sponsored by the Koret Foundation.
