Archinect - News 2017-07-24T04:50:45-04:00 NCARB's new mobile app lets interns manage IDP hours on the go Justine Testado 2014-01-09T12:34:00-05:00 >2014-01-09T13:12:11-05:00 <img src="" width="550" height="550" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">NCARB</a> continues its ongoing streak of system advances with their new MyIDP mobile app. The app can perhaps be handy for any of you iPhone-using interns working through your experience hours for the Intern Development Program.</p> <p> MyIDP was designed for interns who have already established an NCARB Record and begun reporting hours. New experience reports still need to be created online, so MyIDP is an extra portable tool to stay constantly updated on hours and overall IDP progress.</p> <p> Features in the app are: adding/editing hours and viewing all work experience for Settings A and O; submitting experience to supervisors; and as already mentioned, tracking overall progress on the "IDP Progress Dashboard".</p> <p> MyIDP is available for <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">free download</a> on Apple's App Store for iPhone iOS 7. Android users will have to wait for their version in the meantime -- the NCARB Council plans to develop it in the near future.</p> See the MOCA U-Hauls Full of Ingenious Architectural Solutions - LA Architects Making the World a Better Place Archinect 2013-06-06T18:58:00-04:00 >2013-06-11T03:50:24-04:00 <img src="" width="650" height="428" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>A squadron of U-Hauls descended on the parking lot in front of the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA last weekend, setting up a pop-up architecture exhibition in the first in a series of events called On the Road. The U-Hauls served as temporary displays for the work of up-and-coming, experimental architecture practices here in Los Angeles--where architecture businesses are known for being experimental, even if they don't often get a chance to deploy those innovations in Los Angeles.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" ""> <html><head><meta></head></html> Announcing the official Archinect iPhone App!
