RAMSA Partner Meghan L. McDermott
will present "The Tall Building in the Modern City: Engaging the Public Realm" at the University of Houston's Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design on October 18, 2016. The best skyscrapers not only enhance a city's skyline; they also contribute to the public realm of the street. Discussing historical examples and her work as a Partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Meghan McDermott will examine the challenges and opportunities of inserting tall office buildings into urban settings in ways that enhance the life of a city.
The Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture & Design offers its students a platform of integrated disciplines—architecture, interior architecture and industrial design—from which to negotiate the complexities of contemporary practice. The College is named for developer Gerald D. Hines; over the course of a 30-year relationship, Robert A.M. Stern Architects has collaborated with his company on projects in Boston, Washington and Aspen, as well as in Spain, France, Mexico, Brazil, and India.
