About the Lectureship
The Dean Arcangelo Cascieri Lectureship in the Humanities was established by the BAC Alumni Association in 1992 to honor the spirit of volunteerism. Each year, the BAC invites a distinguished speaker to present a public lecture on the many ways in which architecture and design interact with other disciplines, an enrich our common life. It is thanks to our volunteers, as well as the donors and sponsors who contribute so generously to the Cascieri Lectureship Fund, that the lectureship is made possible.
Nicole Dosso, a Director at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, New York office (SOM), is a recognized expert in the technical challenges and solutions associated with the design of tall buildings in complex urban contexts.
In her lecture, Innovation of the World Trade Center, on April 9, 2014, Nicole led us through the history of her work on two of SOM's key projects at the World Trade Center site: 7 World Trade Center and One World Trade center, starting from inception, development of the site, personal experience on September 11th and rebuilding of the two pivotal towers.
