Javits Center, New York City
June 21-23, 2018

Get ready for three immersive days of what’s new and now in architecture and design, hosted in one of the most iconic cities in the world.

Over three days, we’ll explore a theme that resonates with us all: Blueprint for Better Cities.

At A’18, some of the most creative architects, designers and firms will share how they’re creating their own Blueprint for Better to make a difference in cities of every size all over the world, from London, Arkansas, to London, England.

You’ll leave New York with actionable insights you can use on your next project or to make a difference in your community on topics including diversity, equity, and inclusion; materials; energy and carbon; resilience; and design and health.

The National Conference is also the annual occasion for electing National Officers of the Institute by vote of delegates that represent AIA Chapters in the US and worldwide. The Pasadena & Foothill Chapter is allotted up to 19 delegates based on total of 288 members who may cast votes for officers of the National AIA for the coming year.
