We are excited to be presenting on several topics at the 2017 AIA Conference on Architecture (A’17) in Orlando, Florida from April 27-29. This year’s theme is anticipate – and what it means to anticipate need, challenge and change in architecture and design.
Optimizing Façade Performance: A Deep Dive on Design Decisions
Increasingly rigorous building codes and project performance goals put pressure on design teams to create high performance façades that minimize energy use and maximize thermal comfort for the occupants. Join us for a seminar that will put you in the hot seat as you scan infrared images to spot down drafts and hidden heat sources.

Join us for a seminar that will put you in the hot seat as you scan infrared images to spot down drafts and hidden heat sources.
You’ll watch heat-flow simulation for 16 building envelopes and learn how to capture thermal energy using research-based strategies from thermal bridging to glazing design. You’ll come away with the resources to conquer these conflicting goals and position yourself to be a leader in envelope performance.

Introducing the AIA Global Practice Primer
Creation of the Handbook was led by the International Practice Committee with support from the International Region. In this seminar, you’ll learn all about this useful document from the editor. Plus, you’ll explore a wide range of critical topics, including business development and marketing, legal structure and responsibilities, project delivery and technology, culture adaptation, ex-patriot adaptability, and professional development.
Join us for the essential insights and practical advice that are critical to a successful global practice.

Relieving the Stress of Pediatric Emergency Care
A trip to the emergency room is stressful for anyone, particularly children. How can architects help ease a child’s mind by making the experience less tense and chaotic?
One firm found a way, partnering with a health care institution and it’s Family Advisory Council for an innovative pro bono project. The result? An interactive multimedia tool that helps familiarize kids with the hospital environment.
Join us to hear how the participants stretched their skills to enhance and promote well-being among our community’s most vulnerable members—and consider how you might do the same.
