Bringing together pairings of designers and thinkers, regional and non-regional, around two specific topics (mediums and contexts), Pratt Sessions presents conversations from an ongoing lecture series in Pratt Institute’s Graduate Architecture and Urban Design (GAUD) program as a distributed symposium—curated and yet open-ended. The purpose of Pratt Sessions is to debate, question, and discuss matters on the periphery and core of our discipline. To capture a fleeting moment with some precision and allow it to alter, shift, and transform dynamically, iteratively.

Conceived as a series of publications, each volume of Pratt Sessions features six conversations, augmented with supplementary texts, imagery, and commentary. The first volume will present conversations between Stanley Saitowitz and Laurie Hawkinson; Thom Mayne and Steven Holl; Debora Mesa and Anton Garcia Abril and Joshua Bolchover and John Lin; Sanford Kwinter and Bruce Mau; Marcelo Spina and Eric Howeler; and Neil Denari and Thomas Leeser.
