Architecture and the Media is a four-part series co-produced by the AIANY's Oculus Committee and the Marketing & PR Committee with The Architect's Newspaper. The series will explore today’s media landscape, with panels featuring leading architecture and real estate writers, critics, and editors. We will discuss the differences between design criticism and reportage, how architecture is portrayed to the public, and how architects present themselves. The panels will consider how the digital revolution is still radically changing the landscape of publishing. This is the second program in the series.
