October 21st, 2013 Louise really enjoyed participating in a Pecha Kucha roundtable discussion, moderated by Cathleen McGuigan, Editor-in-Chief, Architectural Record, about small firms going global. Nine New York-based architects got together at the AIANY Center for Architecture to talk about the intersection of their small practices with work that takes them around the globe. The conversation highlighted the resourcefulness and flexibility of small firms as well as the complexity of global/local relations in far away places.

Louise invited as guest critic to review Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute student designs for our upcoming museum projectLouise Braverman2018-07-23T18:13:54+00:00
May 10th, 2012 Louise was delighted to join Rachel Lawe, Director of the International Collage Center, noted collage artist, Michael Oatman and his Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute architectural students for their spring final design jury. This event was particularly noteworthy because the project was to plan the new International Collage Center Museum which our firm will be designing in the near future. The insightful designs were, in part, a result of a recent student field trip to the museum site in Milton, Pennsylvania, where Louise, Rachel and Pavel Zoubok, the inspiration behind the new museum, discussed how the intersection of collage and architecture will define the project.
