Makers of Modern Architecture:

Maya Lin in Conversation with Martin Filler

As the designer of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, Maya Lin revolutionized commemorative architecture and is now considered one of the world's greatest women architects.

Among her foremost champions in the press, the architecture critic Martin Filler chose her portrait for the cover of his latest book, Makers of Modern Architecture, Volume III, which examines the crucial role that personality, character, and temperament play in professional practice. Lin, who faced sexism and racism while she pursued her singular career path as an artist-architect, will speak with Filler about the challenges and opportunities she encountered during her rise to international fame.

A book signing follows the event.
