On October 30, 2008, to celebrate MoMA's publication of Modern Swedish Design: Three Founding Texts, Kenneth Frampton, Ware Professor of Architecture at Columbia University, moderated a panel discussion at MoMA on the intellectual background and influence of modern Swedish architecture and design and the critical role of manifestos in architectural discourse.
