Integrated Practice Panel Discussion January 31st

Monthly Program: Integrated Practice
Wednesday, January 31

Panel Discussion + Dinner

$10 Members & their Guests/$20 Non-Members
AIA East Bay: 1405 Clay Street, Oakland, 94612

The buzz word of 2006 was GREEN. This year we have a buzz phrase: INTEGRATED PRACTICE. You'll be seeing it more and more frequently in the context of project delivery. At AIA Convention, in Architectural Record, and from your software consultants.

However, most architects don't really know what Integrated Practice is, how it will change project delivery, and what types of projects and teams it really effects. Is this an issue only big firms need to address? Need residential architects concern themselves? Will Integrated Practice eventually mean the death of the small non-residential firm? And who is driving the push towards Integrated Practice?

This month, AIA East Bay brings together professionals with different views of Integrated Practice to educate, debate, and wrestle with the philosophical changes this approach might have on the profession. Join us on Wednesday, January 31 at 5:30pm in the chapter office for an Integrated Practice Panel Discussion. Our panelists are Ziggy Rubel, AIA of Anshen & Allen (and 2007 AIA SF President), David Bleiman of Rutherford Chekene, Tim Craig, AIA of VBN Architects, and moderator Tim Culvahouse, AIA, editor of arcCA.

The panel will begin promptly and a full dinner and drinks will be served afterwards. The cost is only $10 for members and $20 for non-members; chapter student members can attend at no charge (but must RSVP to
Seats are limited and are filling up fast, so register RIGHT NOW online. Please don't wait until the day of the program, as we might not be able to accommodate you.
