What is BUILD?

Website | Facebook | Twitter

BUILD is a live interview series like no other—a chance for fans to sit inches away from some of today’s biggest names in entertainment, tech, fashion and business as they share the stories behind their projects and passions. Guests have included: Christian Bale, Lena Dunham, John Legend, Pharrell, Amy Poehler, Spike Lee, Will Ferrell, and many others. Every conversation yields insights, inspiration and plenty of surprises as moderators and audience members ask questions.
