On October 27, Robert A.M. Stern will join Lord Norman Foster at the Glass House for a discussion of their shared history, the influence of Philip Johnson on their careers, and the evolving role of architects in today's world. The two men have known each other since they were students at the Yale School of Architecture in the early 1960s. Hilary Lewis, Chief Curator and Creative Director of the Glass House, will moderate the discussion. As the Glass House commemorates its 10th year as a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this intimate conversation and dinner benefits preservation at the site.
