ARCHITECT@WORK and AZURE Talks are pleased to present Róisín Heneghan of Heneghan Peng Architects as our keynote speaker on April 2. Her firm is among the most sought-after in the world, recognized for ambitious projects that include the Palestinian Museum on the West Bank. What first put the Dublin-based firm on the map is the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo. When Heneghan and co-founding partner Shih-Fu Peng won the competition in 2002 – beating out 1,556 entries – they had only three staff members. In Canada, she and her team are the design leads for the future Canoe Museum in Peterborough, Ontario. Half covered by an accessible grass-planted rooftop, the museum’s understated presence in the landscape, says Heneghan, “embraces aboriginal wisdom to live and build lightly on the land.” Róisín Heneghan’s talk qualifies as one ConEd structured learning hour and takes place on April 2 at 3 pm.
