The League’s monthly First Friday series shifted to a new online format and other days of the week. Each event explores design practices in New York City and beyond that operate in multiple roles—coupling architecture with initiatives including design advocacy, fabrication research, and community engagement.
Each program consists of brief presentations about the office structure (including some form of virtual tour, when possible), recent projects, and impetus for creating alternative modes of practice, followed by an informal discussion with attendees. Grab a beverage of your choice and join us for a casual conversation.
Kennedy & Violich Architecture (KVA matx) was founded in 2000 by Juan Frano Violich and Sheila Kennedy. Their work includes architecture, urbanism, and resilient ‘soft’ infrastructure. The Boston-based practice is recognized for innovation in material research and the design of educational buildings for leading research programs in the humanities, natural and social sciences. The firm seeks to transform what seems to be given—program, constituencies, form, material, and spatial typologies—in order to unlock new possibilities for design.
