A’19 conference is your opportunity to meet thousands of new contacts, partners, and collaborators, and gain access to high-profile speakers, brands, and firms.
From software to building systems to materials like stone and tile, you’ll explore the newest and upcoming high-tech products, and experience demos, displays, and galleries. The Architecture Expo isn’t just an exhibit hall—it’s also a temporary built environment packed with solutions that will impact your practice into the future.
There’s also live programming, expo credit courses, demos, galleries, and happy hours, and dedicated expo-only hours (11am—5pm) to give you ample time to browse the floor with no scheduling conflicts.
A’19 programming includes sessions on artificial intelligence, data visualization, 3D concrete printing, Amazon Spheres, tall wood, nano-grid condos, immigrant architects, overcoming houselessness, the latest in WELL design, the energy-hog myth, designing border crossings and ports of entry, zero net energy affordable housing, new codes and standards, and architecture tours of local standouts like Frank Gehry’s Lou Ruvo Brain Center, Seven Magic Mountains, and the Downtown Container Park.
Every year, some of the most creative architects and firms share proven insights, project takeaways, and lessons learned from their best projects. Keynote speakers are Roman Mars, host and creator of 99% Invisible, one of the world’s most popular podcasts about architecture and design and Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, the nonprofit dedicated to closing the gender gap in tech and a new model of leadership that embraces risk and failure.
