AIA's Most Important Event of 2020

Architecture in Turbulent Times

The simultaneous crises of climate change, COVID-19, a looming economic depression, and systemic racial injustice have exposed structural failings that architecture, and society, must address. It’s a perfect storm that has created an unprecedented call for change. Where do we go from here?Architecture in Turbulent Times: Equity, Environment, Health, & Economy is a virtual learning event centered around change. Join us August 12 for 20 powerful sessions across four tracks featuring the latest thinking by leading architects, climate champions, civic leaders, academics, and new voices. You’ll hear the brave ideas and honest dialogue that architecture needs now, and leave with the knowledge you need to be part of the solution.

On August 12, four experts in climate change, government, health, race, and professional practice will discuss the pervasiveness of inequity in our society and share their visions for change. It’s one of 20 powerful sessions that dive into the important, intersecting issues of equity, the economy, the environment, and public health.
