A’19, this year’s AIA Conference on Architecture will be taking place from June 6-8, 2019, with the corresponding Architecture Expo held on June 6 and 7. Both events take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada.
This year, AIA is focused on the theme of “Blueprint for a Better Future,” which involves “designing a better future [by] taking on the critical challenges facing cities – and our world – today.”
“Beyond its excess, extremes, and appetite for the ersatz, Las Vegas is a global pioneer in design,” AIA shared on its website. “Its ever-changing landscape is an incubator for the kind of transformation that influences architecture and design trends the world over. And with tens of millions of visitors each year, Las Vegas is boldly on display. Not just the casinos and nightlife, but the hospitals, schools, community centers, parks, apartment buildings, and art installations that are part of people’s everyday lives.”
The 2019 programming schedule involves more than 500 sessions focused on future-driven technology, including artificial intelligence, 3D concrete printing, tall wood, immigrant architects, affordable housing concerns, and more.
Esteemed event speakers and keynotes who will be part of A’19 include Black Panther co-writer and director Ryan Coogler, Girls Who Code CEO Reshma Saujani, 99% Invisible host Roman Mars, and many more.
