AIA Minnesota convention begins today
The 2007 AIA Minnesota convention is revving up at the Convention Center in Minneapolis. I'm looking forward to several presentations, including "Where in the World is Architecture," by Robert Ivy, editor in chief of Architectural Record, (today at 3 p.m.); "Modern Eco-Homes" by architect Randy Brown of Omaha, Nebraska (Wednesday at 2:30 p.m.); "Too Close for Comfort? Historic Preservation Goes Modern," by Charlene Roise of Hess, Roise and Company of Minneapolis; and "ESG Architects: Profile of Practice," by architects David Graham and Mark Swenson of Elness Swenson Graham, winner of the 2007 AIA Minnesota Firm Award (Friday at 10:15 a.m.). The full schedule is available here.
