AIAS Midwest Quad Conference
WSA values our partnership with the AIAS to provide student mentorship and professional development opportunities.
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 had the opportunity to host a session for the AIAS Midwest quad. Students from Chicago, Kentucky, and Ohio got to tour the office and learn how we craft innovation. It’s always valuable for students to get an inside look at how architects work in the professional realm. We held a design charrette focused on how to create an innovation center. Afterwards, everyone’s favorite part, there was a pizza party complete with Jeni’s ice cream (the WSA way).
