In celebration of Archtober happening next month in NYC, the Ford Motor Company and the American Institute of Architects New York (AIANY) chapter are teaming up to bring us a brand new live panel discussion focused on design that stands the test of time. ’ Design With a Purpose: Built Tough ‘ is the third in Ford’s illuminating webcast series  which has hosted talks between several of today’s leading architects and automotive designers. This month’s webcast will feature high-profile architects and builders from across New York, including Erik Churchill, project manager at SHoP Construction ; Frank J. Sciame Jr., Hon. AIANY Chapter and CEO/chairman of Sciame Construction Company ; Ford’s group vice president of design and chief creative officer  J Mays ; and moderator Rick Bell, FAIA, the executive director of the AIANY . This distinguished panel will discuss how designers can create strong, functional buildings that blend into their environment, yet are resilient enough to endure the passage of time, much like New York City ‘s famous skyscrapers. We’ll be  live streaming  this discussion on  Inhabitat.com  on October 3rd , so mark your calendars! You can also join in on this discussion by submitting your questions in advance for the speakers below in the comments, or during the live panel by tweeting questions to @Ford and @Inhabitat with the hashtag #FordArchitecture !
