After being introduced by David Gregor, Billie Tsien presents a lecture loosely organized around the term “touchstones.” First in reference to her experiences growing up as a female of Chinese descent. Tsien connects these this with her professional work, reviewing projects that range from two-dimensional collages
to large scale urban interventions. The projects engage issues of domestic life, public art, and commerce. The documentation of the projects stresses materials and construction details.
