The focus of this year’s 9th annual AIA ‘Build Pittsburgh’ continuing education conference is on building bettter relationships between owners, architects, contractors, and engineers. http://www.aiapgh.org/home.html.
This year, Springboard Principal Paul Rosenblatt AIA will be moderating one of the Practice Track sessions entitled “What Else Can I Do with This Architecture Degree?”
Panelists include: Maureen Guttman AIA, Pennsylvania Governor’s Green Government Council; Michael J. Kuchera, AIA, LEED AP, BBH Design; and Michael Paul Warren, AIA, LEED AP, Pittsburgh Technical Institute.
The program includes case-study perspectives on how alternative professional careers can illustrate the practitioner’s knowledge and experience in application to non-traditional architectural practice. The presentation will examine the leadership skills that trained architects can utilize in other industries, and how the experience gained in those industries can also benefit the growth and prominence of the profession.
