Join us as we explore the Big Ideas taking shape in New York City as part of this year’s theme Big Cities | Big Ideas. The Big Idea is a consistent thread of design excellence and the underlying concept around which design is brought to life. The best big ideas create memorable architecture, exterior spaces and the places we love to be. They embrace bold and often ground-breaking design thinking and inspirations, a different way of envisioning design possibilities to advance the development of our built environment. Bold, big ideas are the backbone of outstanding projects of all sizes. Nowhere is this more relevant in the world today than in our cities.
New York City is the second largest city in the world, behind only London, the destination for our Fall Conference. Explore with us the new work in these two mega-cities that makes them international destinations for culture, tourism, and business. Inside the history of these two iconic cities are lessons that can guide the rapidly growing cities of today.
The Value of Design in Education: Enhancing Learning Through Design
April 27 - 30, 2014, Barcelona, Spain
The theme of this year's conference – the Value of Design – finds ample expression in Barcelona where design and designers are celebrated. Whereas last year’s amazing conference in San Francisco focused on design thinking and technology, the 2014 conference will underscore the influence of culture, art, and history on the design of places for learning.
Why Barcelona? The post Franco era in Spain allowed the re-emergence of regionalism, and Catalonia, of which Barcelona is the heart, responded enthusiastically. With a robust economy by southern European standards, Mediterranean coastline, and rich architectural heritage, Barcelona is a thriving city with a unique design sensibility. One focus of the Catalonian emergence is the education of their children, as they embarked on an ambitious program of creating learning environments to provide that for that education. They utilized design competitions to select Architects, resulting in a large number of innovative and creative learning environments.
The CAE 2014 Conference will provide as broad a sampling of these stunning buildings as possible, as well as glimpsing a couple of well known architectural gems. Don’t miss it!
The Retail and Entertainment Knowledge Community (REKC) 2014 Conference will be held on May 15th in New York City. This year's conference will examine how entertainment architecture, specifically theatre and performing arts venues, have been instrumental in revitalizing a critical urban district — 42nd Street, from a derelict area back into a vital and vibrant entertainment district and international tourism draw.
When you register for the day conference you will be able to add two Aladdin Broadway musical tickets to your order - one ticket for the day conference attendee and one guest ticket. So bring your significant other and join us!
