Continuing the great relationship between PechaKucha and the American Institute of Architects (AIA), PechaKucha makes a special appearance at the 2013 AIA Conference in Denver this week. With over 10,000 architects in attendance over the four days of the event, we hope to see many PK alumni, organizers, participants and fans from around the world. PechaKucha presentations will occur in the ARCHITECT Live town square on the Expo floor on Thursday and Friday, and feature an array of architects representing AIA membership - from students to Fellows of the Institute.  Mickey Jacob, 2013 President of the AIA will kick off the 400 second long proceedings on Thursday at 10:55am.

9 presentations over two days will celebrate the diversity and range of AIA architect members, including students, and concluding with two of the winners of the 2013 Young Architect Award - PechaKucha Chicago alumni Katherine Darnstadt AIA (check her previous presentations here and here) and Thomas Hussey AIA (an urban planner at Skidmore Owings & Merrill).
