“Soft Footprints” is the intriguing title of the next Architectural Sessions installment at the Parrish Art Museum.
Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu, co-founders of the architectural firm SO – IL, will talk about designing spaces for art as well as about their philosophy, inspiration and interdisciplinary approach. Architect Maziar Behrooz will host the talk. A Q&A will follow.
Based in Brooklyn, SO – IL is described by the Parrish as an experimental and forward-thinking design firm with global reach. Recent projects include exhibition and event spaces in New York City for the first Frieze Art Fair, the Kukje Art Center in Seoul, South Korea, and a campus museum at UC Davis.
Florian Idenburg, associate professor in practice of architecture at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, worked at Pritzker laureates Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa/SANAA for eight years.
Jing Liu, a native of China, worked at New York-based Kohn Pedersen Fox and Starwood prior to co-founding SO – IL. She teaches at Columbia University and at Parsons The New School for Design.
The talk will be held on Friday, June 20, at 6 p.m. at the Water Mill museum. Tickets cost $10, and reservations are recommended. More information is available at parrishart.org/programs.
