The event featured numerous speakers including former Dean of the Yale School Architecture Robert A.M. Stern, members of the Library of Congress Center for Architecture, Design, and Engineering in the Prints & Photographs Division and architects who had renovated or built additions to significant Rudolph buildings.

The highlight of the event was the chance to view original materials from the collection, including a special surprise by Mari Nakahara, Curator of Architecture, Design & Engineering of the original model of the Modulightor Building facade which is the headquarters of the Paul Rudolph Heritage Foundation.
