The Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) is a large and active group of architects and allied professionals concerned with the quality and design of all types of educational, cultural, and recreational facilities.
Planning for resilience and change is an urgent necessity – for the well-being of the built environment, for social institutions and for every human being. Achieving resilience today means understanding how enduring buildings and urban fabric sustain themselves by continuous, incremental renewal. Planning for change necessitates recognition that built environment transformation is a process in which multiple jurisdictions, investors, professions and everyday citizens share responsibility over time. The Open Building approach celebrates adaptability, resilience and distribution rather than centralization of control. Its design strategies structure public space that supports and inspires development of private space where people and organizations can make independent decisions about use: Build to last / build to renew.
This conference and exhibition aim to expand the discourse of Open Building by bridging practice and academia. Held at the A+D Museum in the Arts District of Los Angeles, the conference will bring together thought leaders in the building industry and from centers of research and public agencies around the world in lectures, panel discussions, research presentations and a curated exhibition.
