Avis-Elsmere project will be featured at the ACSA Intersections Symposium
The Avis-Elsmere project will be a part of the 2019 ACSA Intersections Symposium BOTTOM-UP SOCIAL CHANGE: Materials | Buildings | Community at the AIA Conference on Architecture June 6-8 in Las Vegas.
Tadd Heidgerken will be discussing the project in a seminar titled "Beyond the Building: Social Change through Community Engagement." A shifting economic and climatic landscape has left many properties abandoned and neighborhoods neglected. Successful community projects spearheaded by architects can rally communities to rebuild and restore their cities and towns.
Architect and podcaster for DWELL magazine, Dan Maginn, FAIA, will moderate this session to inspire architects everywhere to engage the power of collaborative design for positive change. Hear about successful projects in New Orleans, Mississippi, and Detroit that demonstrate how collaboration with local partners improved communities while developing new business opportunities.
