Reinvention is less than two months away, and we don't want you to miss out on this year's exciting programming and speakers. We're bringing you our annual housing tour, Leadership Awards Luncheon and award-winners panel discussion, informative and inspiring sessions, networking opportunities, and Continuing Education Hours from the AIA–all in two and a half days! It's the one event of the year not to miss!

 



Here's a sample of some of our sessions and speakers:

KEYNOTE ADDRESS
"Progress Report: Adapting and Evolving"

Every architecture firm has streamlined during this recession, but lean doesn't mean you can't still go for those big firm commissions. Learn how Rick Joy, known for his jewel-like single-family commissions, has stretched his small practice to tackle complex and sometimes far-flung master planning and design projects.

PRESENTER
Rick Joy, AIA, Rick Joy Architects, Ltd.

 


Thinking and Making

When design stops at the contractor or developer's feet, architects shed control and commissions. No wonder more entrepreneurial young firms are embracing the whole project–from start to finish. Learn how design-led design/build practices and design-led development teams are making their own luck in residential architecture.

PANELISTS
David Dowell, AIA, and Douglas Stockman, El Dorado Inc; Andrew van Leeuwen, Assoc. AIA, and Kevin Eckert, LEED AP, Build LLC; Jared Della Valle, AIA, Alloy; Lise de Vito, Assoc. AIA, and Jim Zack, AIA, Zack | de Vito Architecture Construction

 


Case Study: What a High-Design Firm Learned From Prefab

If you've ever dreamed of expanding your influence on American housing, you'll learn from the inspiring and perspiring journey one top-ranking firm took to reinvent the mass market formula. Lake|Flato's Porch House combines the indoor/outdoor living and vernacular architecture the firm is famous for, along with a set of modules for maximum flexibility in siting and adaptability to myriad program needs.

PANELISTS
Ted Flato, FAIA, Lake|Flato; Bill Aylor, AIA, Lake|Flato

 


Special Participatory Event–"You On View" Slide Presentation by attendees and speakers

It's been a tough year for everyone in the profession. But slow times are when architects reignite their inventive sides. Here's your chance to share your built or conceptual work, your thoughts about housing and residential practice, or any other creative enterprise that inspires you. Take two minutes and show everyone what's on your mind.

Getting It Right: The Architect/Builder Collaboration

Beautiful, successful houses require a meeting of the minds among important members of the project team. Hear from accomplished architects and custom builders about how they keep communication, invention, and problem-solving flowing as they execute their one-of-a-kind collaborations.

PANELISTS
Andy Byrnes, AIA, Construction Zone; Wendell Burnette, AIA, Wendell Burnette Architects; Eddie Jones, AIA, Jones Studio; Neal Jones, AIA, LEED AP, Jones Studio
