SA214 "Experiential Architecture: Beyond the Box" will be presented June 22nd at the 2013 AIA National Convention in Denver, Colorado. Architecture is about more than programs and budgets, project management and construction documents. It is fundamentally about how design affects people. All architecture is experiential. This panel will discuss experiential architecture from multiple perspectives: from the neuroscience of how our brains process, and are modified by, the designs we create, to the implementation across retail stores, hotels and resorts, and amusement parks. We will discuss how and why experiential architecture is important; how that value is understood and leveraged by some of the world's most successful businesses; and how architecture is more than bricks and mortar, programs and budgets. It's about the places we create.

He is results-oriented executive with proven ability to lead large, complex projects and multi-disciplined design teams with a total of over $3.6B of hard construction built to date.
