TALK VOL.16 | 践享第十六期 Young Designers And The Practice of Architecture
Young architects in early careers face daily challenges and opportunities while operating in multidisciplinary worlds. How can we become more successful in navigating the complex landscape of today's practice? How can we bring our new ideas to the real world and change the current status of practice?
In the upcoming “APT” talk, we are excited to have David Lee, a practicing architect and an educator, to share his thoughts on young designers and the practice of architecture.
Ye Zhang and GSAPP Incubator for their generosity will co-host this event.
活动地点/Location：231 Bowery, New York

The GSAPP Incubator is a launch pad for new ideas and projects about architecture, culture, and the city. Drawing on Columbia GSAPP guest lecturers, discourse, and studio culture, the Incubator hosts and encourages a wide range of experiments initiated by recent Columbia GSAPP graduates. Targeted projects combine action with discussion at the levels of the university, the city, and local ways of life.
The GSAPP Incubator offers a platform for entrepreneurship and expanded modes of practice. Yet it is distinct from other incubators and co-working spaces in several ways. The Incubator includes the humanities as well as the sciences. It involves critique and discourse as well as action and technology. It generates deep thinking as well as concise elevator pitches. And it uses measures of success beyond profit and growth.
