AIA Technology in Architectural Practice PHILADELPHIA
The AIA Technology in Architectural Practice Knowledge Community (TAP) serves as a resource for AIA members, the profession, and the public in the deployment of computer technology in the practice of architecture. Technology in Architectural Practice monitors the development of computer technology and its impact on architecture practice and the entire building life cycle, including design, construction, facility management, and retirement or reuse.
I am looking for folks interested in helping organize a regional venue for the upcoming AIA event "Broadening the Perspective of Technology in Architectural Practice"
Following the AIA multi-point multi-program conference model, I am looking at AIA TAP Philadelphia being a Regional Venue to blend high-quality national content with regional experts in local communities.
About the event:
Committed to the deployment of computer technology in the practice of architecture, AIA’s Technology in Architectural Practice knowledge community (TAP) continues to be a leader in promoting interoperability and BIM adoption through webinars, conferences, and resources. The 2012 Annual TAP Conference embodies the same commitment to a wider range of technology through a unique multi-point multi-program (MPMP) structure delivering live content online, at Regional Venues around the country, and at a central hub location…this year at Stanford University.
A MPMP event preserves the networking opportunities of a conference, familiarity of your local component, and convenience of webinars to deliver premium, real-time continuing education to members, blending content from national and regional experts. This year’s conference will offer three hours of streaming education... More information on the event can be found here: http://network.aia.org/technologyinarchitecturalpractice/Home/Broadening/
It makes sense to host the Philadelphia venue at the Center for Architecture but nothing is set in stone. There are a number of decisions to make and marketing to do in a short amount of time. Your help is needed! Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
The Philadelphia Chapter of AIA TAP is looking to host at least two events this year at the AIA in conjunction with National AIA TAP. If you are interested in helping organize these, please contact Craig Barbieri.
