Taking place February 8-9, the Building Pulitzer Colloquium, which is free and open to the public, will bring together key participants in the design and construction of this iconic building. The colloquium will provide unique insight into the extraordinary collaboration and dedication required to realize this project. Hosted by the The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts and Washington University in St. Louis, the event focuses on how this building, designed by an internationally recognized architect, was completed. Topics will include the working structure between Tadao Ando’s office and the St. Louis-based team, the realization of Ando’s design intent through the translation of American methods of construction, and the creation of a work environment that fostered construction excellence. More information on the event after the break.

It was nearly a four-year undertaking, but after a total of 5,000 cubic yards of concrete and utilizing processes and techniques rarely, if ever, used in America, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando’s design for The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts—his first structure in the United States intended for public use—was completed in 2001.
