2014 Saratoga Design Conference Overview
An exploration of the dramatic changes taking place in the practice of architecture.
The 2014 Saratoga Design Conference is the definitive design event of the year. The theme for our inaugural conference is "New Practice/ New Design", an exploration of the dramatic changes we are seeing in the practice of architecture and the innovative design work that results.
It is an exclusive learning and networking opportunity which will bring the worlds of practice and academia together for an in depth look at new practice methodologies and innovative design work. This theme is actively being discussed and investigated in architect's offices around New York State, large and small, as well as in our schools of architecture
The two and a half day conference will give attendees an immersion in new services that are being offered and in the design work that these new services make possible. The Design Conference's main goal is to impart practical and theoretical knowledge that will allow attendees to expand the areas of practice they engage in and do more relevant and innovative design work.
This event will bring together architects from all over New York State. The conference will feature a trade show with vendors from all over the country, continuing education programs, tours of historical landmarks and evening social events. New concepts include partnering with New York State’s Schools of Architecture to make for a meaningful convergence of practice and theory, practitioners and academics, as well as interactive design workshops for all conference attendees led by world-renowned architects.
