Moynihan Symposium on Public Design

On the afternoon of May 16th in Washington DC, GSA is hosting The Moynihan Symposium on Public Design, a national discussion about the potential, future — and responsibility– of public design.  If you’re interested, we think you should save the date now.

Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan was not a designer but he was one of this country’s greatest champions for design quality on public projects.  He was a candid, eloquent, and provocative proponent for the importance of higher ideals in all public design.  And, in many ways, he is a founding father of GSA’s own Design Excellence Program.  The symposium will take place on the 50th anniversary of the Guiding Principles for Federal Architecture, Moynihan’s 1962 challenge to raise the bar on the design of public buildings.

The discussion will feature prominent leaders in the realm of public design and, in the spirit of the late Senator, the discussion promises to be thought provoking, challenging, and fun.
