Please join AIA Charleston at our June meeting for aroundtable discussion featuring the leaders of multiple regional schools of architecture. The moderated discussion will provide an opportunity to learn about current educational models at the undergraduate and graduate level, as well as forthcoming initiatives such as NCARB’s pilot program for “Licensure Upon Graduation.”  We hope you’ll join us for a lively and interactive discussion about the relationship between the academy and practice. Please note that we have extended the meeting time to allow for discussion.
This event is Free for High School and College students.
Academic Roundtable RSVP

Film Screening

In the late afternoon, following the roundtable discussion, please join AIA Charleston at The Design Division for a 6 pm Happy Hour and screening of the documentary Archiculture.

About the film:
Archiculture takes a thoughtful, yet critical look at the architectural studio. The 25-minute film offers a unique glimpse into the world of studio-based, design education through the eyes of a group of students finishing their final design projects. Interviews with leading professionals, historians and educators help create crucial dialog around the key issues faced by this unique teaching methodology and the built environment these future architects will create.

Light refreshments will be provided. Due to limited venue capacity, attendance will be limited. Please RSVP using the link below to help us plan accordingly.

Each AlA accredited program will be presented by the leading experts in their particular field. Guests will earn a total of 5 AlA CEUs with HS&W credit.

At the conclusion of the day, please join us at a reception where you can network, meet the presenters, and discuss solutions for your particular project. The cost to attend is $25 for AlA members, $40 for non-members. Attend all or part of the day for the same flat fee. We look forward to seeing you there!
