The Glass House Presents


Deborah Berke and artist Titus Kaphar come together for a conversation about art, architecture, community, and urban transformation. The two are currently collaborating on the building for NXTHVN, a new arts incubator that will provide studio space, mentorship, professional development, and training in the Dixwell neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut.

“I think the way architects collaborate is probably different from the way fine artists collaborate because the very act of being an architect is collaborative. I think we are more like playwrights than we are actually like fine artists in that the success of our work depends on the extraordinary efforts and talents of others.”
—Deborah Berke
