AIA National Convention 2017
Architects across the country come together, learn, and inspire at the annual AIA Convention.
WSA Studio’s two principals, Tim Hawk & Todd Boyer, ventured down to Orlando to represent the firm at the 2017 AIA National Convention.
The convention featured four full days of speakers, workshops, vendors, networking, and showing off WSA. The theme of the convention was Anticipating a Better Tomorrow, which, according to the event website, embodies what it means to “Harness the collective intellect and entrepreneurial spirit of speakers whose power to anticipate has shaped their careers and our industry. Over three days our keynoters will explore this theme and what it means to anticipate need, challenge, and change in architecture and design.”
The keynote speakers personified that message. Anticipating change, challenge, and need were all touched on, with special guest, former First Lady Michelle Obama. The AIA National Convention is all about learning from leaders around the globe that are making strides towards bettering the world through architecture and related fields. Wherever the interest lies, it can be found here in an educational and inspiring way.
