The focus of the conference is two-fold: residential and healthcare architecture.
Beyond hosting lectures by prominent leaders in the field and peer-reviewed paper sessions, the conference also promises to be a truly immersive experience for participants. In the months leading up to the conference we will hold a student competition, whose winning projects will be exhibited during the conference. We will also host panel discussions, exhibits of build open building projects, and collective events where attendees can exchange ideas, network, and socialize.
Members of academic communities (faculty and students) and professional communities (design, development, construction, business) are cordially welcomed.
