Piranesi boldly combined historical elements according to his own eclectic vision to create innovative designs that still resonate today. Cooper-Hewitt invites a panel of designers to discuss how, like Piranesi, their imaginative and often irreverent use of historical motifs invigorate contemporary design.

Members and students with valid ID: $5; non-Members: $10.
