2015 AIBC Annual Conference: Communicating the Value of Architecture
October 14, 2015
Communicating the value of architecture is extremely challenging. The Manitoba Association of Architects Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has spent a great deal of effort refining its value proposition – both the value of architecture and architects. This session will look at the work of Storefront Manitoba, Centre for Architecture Design & Urbanism, a non-profit group of multi-disciplinary professionals that work to “advance the awareness and appreciation of architecture, design and the built environment,” and discuss the roles of the architect as they relate to a perception of value between emerging and established architects.
