On Saturday, May 29, Consulting Partner Bill Baker will be delivering a lecture on the design of the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, as part of AIA Japan's lecture series. Baker's presentation will trace the design of the building, from its inception in a design competition in 2003 to the Grand Opening in 2010. He will also discuss the impact the building has had over the past decade.

On Saturday, June 19, Design Partner Colin Koop will also host a lecture reflecting on the state of SOM's multi-generational design practice during a time of transformational change, how to wrestle with a rich but complex design history, and how one's curiosity and particular interests can manifest themselves with a portfolio of work. In his presentation, Koop will discuss several recent projects, including 4 Hudson Square – Disney New York, Moynihan Train Hall, and the Moon Village.
