Designing Projects That Go Beyond Their Intended Purpose

Let our experts show you how at A’22 in Chicago June 22-25, 2022


The anticipation is high for the return of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Conference on Architecture to an in-person event. With the dynamic architectural city of Chicago as the conference backdrop, it is sure to be one to remember. Conference planners understand the design world has gotten more complex, and we do too. This year’s focus is on exploring architecture’s ability to drive new thinking in a city that’s been ranked among the most design-forward, sustainable cities in the U.S. As part of this charge, we we’re pushing the envelope on the way architects approach building design.

Central to our lives are the various places where we live, work, play, learn, and heal. The construction of these spaces impacts the many people that occupy or pass through, but the most memorable places go beyond intended purpose.

For A’22, we’re crafting a walkthrough art gallery-style exhibit #1424 and curating a unique series of walls with detailed displays, not unlike a giant mood board, assemblage, or collage. The exhibit is designed to put you, the architect, in the role of an artist and allow you to examine how skillfully constructed buildings and facades can be imagined as vast canvases with a mindful selection of materials.
