Interfaith Design at AIA Conference on Architecture 2018

June 21-23, New York City

EV305 - International Religious Art & Architecture Awards Program

June 21, 7:30-9pm | SL Gallery, 335 West 38th Street | Cost is $20

Religious buildings and spaces are bridges between the sacred and the secular—from small chapels and large complexes to the grander-scale memorials and cemeteries that openly embrace the city.

The Faith and Form/Interfaith Design awards reception will highlight outstanding designs that represent the best of building, space, and art on national and international levels. Join us in celebrating the honorees of this esteemed international program.

This celebratory event would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors: Ratigan-Schottler and Willet Hauser Architectural Glass

This presentation will focus on how the new accessibility requirements impact design and construction and provide an overview of the adoption process to determine when the requirements will be applicable.

TH208 - East Baltimore Revitalization Project (ArchiTalk)

June 21, 7:30-9am | Hilton Midtown | Earn 1.5 LU/HSW/RIBA

For decades, Baltimore's Broadway East neighborhood has struggled with high crime, vacancy, and poverty rates along with economic disinvestment. In response to the 2015 unrest that followed the controversial death of Freddie Gray, some locals decided to take action. It started with neighborhood leader Rev. Donte Hickman and employers of the planning firm Ayers Saint Gross. Together, they identified the need for a clear vision and master plan for the future.

EV401 - Faith and Architecture Prayer Breakfast

June 22, 7-8am | Javits Center | Cost is $60

Nourish yourself with food and faith as you begin your Friday with inspiring words from a distinguished speaker from New York City's faith community. Commune with colleagues and members of the AIA family over breakfast, with extra helpings of fellowship and spiritual enrichment.

The theme for this year's breakfast is In the shadow of 9-11: The Reverend Stephen Harding serves as Pastor of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Chelsea, as Chaplain for the New York City Fire Department, and Disaster Response Coordinator for the Diocese of New York. After the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, he cared for rescue workers, survivors, and their families as a Volunteer Chaplain, and he has responded to most of the major incidents that have taken place in New York City over the last 13 years.
