Drinks with a Designer: Ali Tayar @ PoP Burger

Date: Thursday, October 11th
Location: Parallel Design Partnership followed by drinks at PoP Burger
Time: 7:00 pm

Come mingle with prominent architect Ali Tayar over a short office visit followed by drinks and casual conversation just steps away at PoP Burger, Tayar’s widely popular Bar and Lounge in the Meat Packing District.

Tayar’s practice is a unique mix of architecture, engineering, and artistry. His research involves testing the limits of new materials, CNC technology, and innovative fabrication processes to investigate the relationship between design and mass production. Here’s your chance to get a rare, anecdotal peek at the design, manufacturing, and construction process of a high-end restaurant in New York City.
