This year's issue will include a personal tour of Jens Risom's house on Block Island as well as a look at the evolution of prefab, with highlights such as the next generation of concrete block construction used in South Africa. Joseph Tanney's newest project is also featured and will be a main talking point in the evening's discussion.
