Terri + Ian Present at Shaping the City Symposium in Venice, Italy

In October of 2021, The European Cultural Centre hosted the third edition of Shaping the City: A Forum for Sustainable Cities & Communities, in tandem with the Venice Architecture Biennial 2021 titled Time, Space, Existence.

Divided into four themes of conversation, Shaping the City tackles contemporary urbanization and key issues in the city, presented through the perspectives of a group of academics, urban planners and designers, architects, and policy makers,” that bring forth a unique, global perspective.

Among the 212 architecture firms that were invited to present at the 2021 Time Space Existence Exhibit, and as the first and only architecture firm from the State of Louisiana, NANO’s Founders Terri and Ian Dreyer were one of the panelists at Shaping the City; their presentation, “Existing, Surviving, and Thriving on the Edge” was part of the “Climate Change and Resilient Cities” subtheme.
