Design for Innovation


April 5th - 8th, 2018  -  Ashley Kerwood

Each year, AIAS (American Institute of Architecture Students) regional conferences take place annually in the spring in the Northeast, South, Midwest and West Quads. These gatherings, known as Quad Conferences, are hosted by local chapters who have been selected to organize the event by their Quad. Themes vary based on the city, local culture, and architectural topic of choice. This year, the Midwest Quad was held in Columbus, Ohio.

The WSA team recently had the opportunity to host a session for the AIAS Midwest quad.  Students from Chicago, Kentucky, of course Ohio, got to tour the office and learn how we craft innovation. We held a design charrette focused on designing an innovation center. Afterwards, everyone’s favorite part, there was a pizza party complete with Jeni’s ice cream (the wsa way).
