AIA Conference on Architecture

Blueprint for a Better Future - Las Vegas, NV

Click here for more information on hotels, registration and events

Designing a better future means taking on the critical challenges facing cities—and our world—today.

Future cities

Beyond its excess, extremes, and appetite for the ersatz, Las Vegas is a global pioneer in design. Its ever-changing landscape is an incubator for the kind of transformation that influences architecture and design trends the world over.

And with tens of millions of visitors each year, Las Vegas is boldly on display. Not just the casinos and nightlife, but the hospitals, schools, community centers, parks, apartment buildings, and art installations that are part of people’s everyday lives.

This work is a testimony to how architects are designing a better future by taking on the critical challenges facing cities—and our world—today.

A’19 programming includes sessions on artificial intelligence, data visualization, 3D concrete printing, Amazon Spheres, tall wood, nano-grid condos, immigrant architects, overcoming houselessness, the latest in WELL design, the energy-hog myth, designing border crossings and ports of entry, zero net energy affordable housing, new codes and standards, and architecture tours of local standouts like Frank Gehry’s Lou Ruvo Brain Center, Seven Magic Mountains, and the Downtown Container Park.

At A’19, we’ll explore designing a better future, for everyone.
