On January 13th, 2017, The Architecture Lobby is hosting a Think-In at Gensler Oakland. The event will take place from 5-9pm. A Think-In is a forum for working through difficult and contested ideas in architectural practice. We are inviting an array of contributors to weigh in: activists, practitioners, leaders of professional organizations, and academics. The Think-In is free and open to the public, and all interested students, academics, or practitioners are strongly encouraged to join the discussion. Food and drink will also be served. Visit our Facebook page for more information.
