The 2016 AIA Convention just finished and Philadelphia was a great host to architects and design professionals from around the world. AIA New Jersey members were able to take advantage of the close location of convention this year and it was wonderful to see so many of us attending.
Congratulations to the newest NJ fellows who were inducted during the convention: Michael Schnoering, FAIA and Dean Marchetto, FAIA.
An AIANJ Fellows Reception to honor our AIANJ fellows was held on Thursday, May 19th, on the 24th floor of the Hotel Palomar. Thanks to our event sponsor – Andersen Windows and Doors for hosting AIANJ for this wonderful evening.
The hotel was an appropriately location as it is also know as The Architect’s Building is a 1929 Art Deco tower that originally designed by a consortium of 20 architects and was the longtime home of AIA Philadelphia.
A number of local NJ architecture firms hosted a variety of events, including KSS, Gensler, and Kitchen & Associates. Including the announcement of the winners of the Inaugural ARCHICAD Student Design Competition.
Friday night of the convention an open house in the Collingwood, NJ, office of K&A was the stage for the announcement of the winners and a presentation by Graphisoft.
The design competition used shipping containers and sites centered around Philadelphia and the AIA Convention and was sponsored by Graphisoft, Kitchen & Associates and AIA West Jersey.
