At the Aspen Ideas Festival

Last week, I spent two and a half very pleasant days at the Aspen Ideas Festival, an annual meeting of intellectual leaders from around the planet, with a focus this year on China. I moderated two panels, one on telling stories through film, another on re-imagining public space. I wrote up a few thoughts  I brought home from my time there at the Post’s The Style Blog.

With Elizabeth Diller at the Aspen Institute

C-SPAN has posted video of the Aspen Institute Cultural Diplomacy Forum, at which I interviewed architect Elizabeth Diller, of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the architecture firm that is remaking Lincoln Center, created the Highline and is at work on a “bubble” structure for Washington’s own Hirshhorn Museum. Enjoy.
