The third panel, 'Designing for Resiliency and the Transcendent in a Mega Urban World' included four powerhouse and visionary architects, Annabelle Selldorf; Rafael Vinoly; Chris Cooper from SOM; and Daniel Sundlin from BIG. The four discussed intriguing and energizing topics in NYC architecture, demonstrating why they stand at the forefront of the profession. They addressed the Hudson Yards, which was opened to the public yesterday; regulations in skyscrapers construction; how each one of them has made their names in specific aesthetic sensibility; about relationships with developers, and more.
