Log is pleased to announce the lineup for In Pursuit of Architecture, a conference in celebration of the magazine’s tenth anniversary, to be held at The Museum of Modern Art in New York on September 21, 2013.

The ten architects participating in the conference were selected from an open call for submissions of work built between 2003 and 2013:
51N4E (Brussels)
Barkow Leibinger (Berlin)
C+S architects (Treviso)
LAN (Paris)
MOS (New York City)
Neil M. Denari Architects (Los Angeles)
OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen (Brussels)
Preston Scott Cohen (Cambridge)
Reiser + Umemoto (New York City)
UNStudio (Amsterdam)

These architects will be joined by four architecture critics – Sam Jacob (London), Sylvia Lavin (Los Angeles), Emmanuel Petit (New Haven), and Sarah Whiting (Houston) – in a series of roundtable discussions about the physical and conceptual challenges of making architecture. In the face of ever-changing sociopolitical, economic, and environmental demands, the participants will address what it means to pursue architecture today.

In Pursuit of Architecture will take place on Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 10AM to 5PM at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The event is free and open to the public, though a pre-reserved ticket will be required. Reservations will open in August.

In Pursuit of Architecture is sponsored by Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® and co-organized by Log and the Department of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art.
