For this year’s annual Career Day, Virginia Tech’s School of Architecture+Design hosted 106 Design firms from across the U.S.

Once again, Career Day was inaugurated with a lecture by a world-renowned architect. Bernard Tschumi, Principal of Tschumi Architects, New York and Paris, presented in the Moss Arts Center’s main hall on Sunday, February 23, 2020.

About 900 individuals, including professionals, faculty members, and students, were engaged by Mr. Tschumi’s arguments of the interconnectedness of theory and practice that have guided his work over the years.

Prior to lecture, firm representatives and faculty members met informally with Bernard Tschumi during a reception in the foyer of the Moss Arts Center, and the following morning, Mr. Tschumi generously responded to students’ questions at one of School’s recurring “Conversation with Students” events.
