We are at a critical transition in architectural education—a transition that must propel schools to address the urgency of the multiple challenges facing our current environment.

Join us in engaging this transition at the 2019 Reynolds Symposium: Education by Design, in Portland, Oregon, October 18–19, 2019. Faculty, practitioners, content experts, and students from 21 universities and 4 countries will present their inspiring, reflective, and effective lessons that represent a shift in the process from creating fossil-fuel-based communities, toward building environments that are healthy, resilient, and carbon-emissions free. AIA LU available.

The Symposium begins on Friday, October 18 at 5:15 p.m. with a keynote lecture, “From sustainability to resilience – preaching outside the choir” by architect Nina Maritz from Windhoek, Namibia. Please register with Eventbrite to attend the lecture.

October 19 begins with a keynote, “Redefining Design Excellence for a Climate Positive World” by architects Marsha Maytum, FAIA and Bill Leddy, FAIA, Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects (LSMA). We are proud to welcome back these principals of their award-winning firm that is dedicated to addressing issues of climate change and educational leadership.

A full day of parallel paper sessions and poster presentations on the following topics: 1) Design Integration; 2) Design with Climate; and 3) Digital Approaches. The day ends with an In-Practice Panel: How Did You Get There? This panel features the Oregon Zoo Education Center, a 2019 AIA COTE© Top Ten Award project and the design team, OPSIS Partner-in-charge, Alec Holser and Heather DeGrella, Senior Associate and other team members discussing their design approach and the top ten measurable impacts. The Symposium will end with a celebratory reception, sponsored by the Society of Building Science Educators.
