AIA Designing Tomorrow's Architect Essay Winner, Award
Organized around the concepts of innovating, envisioning, connecting, and empowering, the 2005 Conference dynamically explored its theme of “Designing Tomorrow’s Architect.” With
more than 70 invited participants on hand, the conference provided a forum through which architectural internship could be strengthened and revitalized.
Twenty-seven emerging professionals—each of whom had written an essay as part of a competition that determined which young professionals would attend the conference— contributed a lion’s share of feedback. The advisory committee had selected a diverse group of young professionals who represented different firm sizes, experience levels, and geographic distribution.
