On October 23, 2017, Sara Caples, AIA, and Everardo Jefferson, AIA, principals of Caples Jefferson Architects (CJA), will engage in a conversation about the firm’s work with critic Vladimir Belogolovsky in a program entitled What We Love About Doing This Work, at the Center for Architecture in New York. A selection of CJA’s projects will be highlighted, including New York City-based ones such as the Queens Theatre-in-the-Park and Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn, as well as upcoming projects scheduled for completion in 2019—the Louis Armstrong House Museum Visitor Center in Corona, Queens, and The Africa Center at One Museum Mile, 1280 Fifth Avenue, in Manhattan.
Recipient of this year’s AIA New York President’s Award, CJA will describe the notion of conceptualizing social practice as a way of broadening and deepening the language of contemporary architecture, thus strengthening aesthetic quality. By listening and responding to the aspirations of the communities their building projects serve, the firm is known for creating formally coherent architecture that provides lasting value in function and design.
The program will conclude with a Q & A with the audience.
