Architecture and the Great Recession

It is difficult to exaggerate the chilling effect of the economic slowdown on architecture. A panel of developers, architects, and design experts examines how the building industry is responding to profound challenges created by the current recession and how the building industry is responding to the prolonged economic downturn. Mara Liasson of National Public Radio and Fox News, provides opening remarks and then moderates a discussion among the following panelists:

*Shelia Cahnman, group vice president, HOK

*MaryAnne Gilmartin, executive vice president, director of commercial & residential development, Forest City Ratner Companies

*Cathleen McGuigan, editor-in-chief, Architectural Record

*Claire Weisz, WXY Architecture + Urban Design

This is the seventh annual Women of Architecture program presented by the National Building Museum, in collaboration with the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation (BWAF). The series celebrates women in the building industry during Women’s History Month.
