Architect Enrique Norten explains why he relies less on inspiration than on a complex and analytical research-focused design process. See for yourself as the founding principal of TEN Arquitectos presents the firm’s recent work, including One York Street, and the Guggenheim Museum in Guadalajara, Mexico. Norten has also designed two striking new buildings for Washington, D.C.'s West End. G. Martin Moeller, Jr., the Museum’s senior vice president and curator, moderates a discussion between Norten and his client, Eastbanc's Anthony Lanier, about these projects and modern architecture in the nation’s capital.
