1. Held in conjunction with the Museum of Modern Art exhibition, Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955-1980 (March 29-July 19, 2015), Learning from/in Latin America is a two-day conference co-organized by Princeton University and MoMA designed to further explore key positions, debates, and architectural activity arising from Mexico to South America over three decades of architectural and urban development from 1955 to the early 1980s.

    For the day-long symposium, established and emerging scholars of architecture and urbanism convene to discuss ideas central to the formulation of the exhibition: campuses as urban laboratories, the image and imaginary of the city, and the concept of the informal city.
