How can architects and design professionals leverage the global United Nations New Urban Agenda in the Bay Area? Charisma Acey, PH.D., professor of city & regional planning, University of California, Berkeley, and Michael Pyatok, FAIA, principal, Pyatok Architecture and Urban Design, will offer their thoughts as part of keynote addresses at the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco (AIASF) NEXT Conference on May 31, and June 1, 2018.
Their presentations will explore how design has branched out in new directions, galvanizing young practitioners, sparking novel business models, and attracting worldwide attention. The AIASF NEXT Conference is a two-day event in San Francisco, on May 31, and June 1, 2018. Featuring over 50 leaders in the building and design industries, the conference presents dynamic conversation and knowledge sharing about the future of the built environment. AIASF NEXT serves as a platform to build relationships, generate clients, and discover new ideas.
“With the support and participation of our allied community partners, NEXT is an interdisciplinary experience that leverages the collective knowledge of professionals involved at every level of the Bay Area’s built environment,” remarks AIASF Executive Director Jennifer Jones, CAE, IOM.
The NEXT Conference is hosted at the California College for the Arts and the San Francisco Art Institute, two of San Francisco’s educational institutions. The first day of the conference is a Housing Symposium featuring a discussion focused on placemaking and its potential to influence the creative process through community engagement. Following a three-track system, the second day of the conference will take attendees to the San Francisco Art Institute for concurrent break-out sessions on the latest in design, business, and technology.
