AIA Convention 2014 Keynotes

Purpose, practice, & plan

As architects, we’re inspired by purpose—a sense of meaning, understanding, beauty, and function. We’ll explore purpose—this year’s theme—at one of convention’s most popular and influential events: The keynotes.

They dream big, they provoke, they inspire, and AIA Convention 2014 brings them to you.

These are the individuals who push the boundaries, who challenge the way we think, and who bring alive the latest concepts changing architecture, design, and the world we live in.

Leading firm principals, sustainability experts, innovators, disrupters, and entrepreneurs—we’ve included every type of inspiring perspective to push our profession forward and to make you think.

Join 2015 AIA President Helene Combs Dreiling, FAIA, and Stephen Chung, AIA, host of Cool Spaces!, on a three-day journey designed to reignite your passion, and practice, with purpose.

See for yourself the experience we’ve designed to provoke, stimulate, celebrate, and inspire you.
