Join Cooper Hewitt curator Matilda McQuaid as she moderates a panel discussion about the role tools play in large-scale projects. Panelists including Paul Ceruzzi of the National Air & Space Museum, William Goodrich of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and Chuck Hoberman, artist, engineer, and inventor of folding and transforming structures, will provide insight into how we use powerful tools—from the internet to space shuttles to tunnel-boring machines—to accomplish a range of initiatives.
