The International Design Conference in Aspen is holding two panels about 'Critical Ideas in a Time of Need' - discussions about design in New York, other cities, and the world.
"The first night, Design for Change , will be a roundtable discussion with community advocates, developers and city representatives. The second evening, Local Voices, Global Issues, will feature renowned architect Michael Sorkin and Lebbeus Woods, will look beyond New York and discuss the boundaries of design in a glocal environment."

Sponsored by Architecture for Humanity, the panels take place at Scandinavia House at 58 Park Avenue tonight and tomorrow. For more information and RSVP.

Lebbeus Woods' designs inspired designers of 12 Monkeys; indeed, Woods successfully sued Universal Studios for taking his designs.
