AIA Northern Virginia Women in Architecture 2017 Lecture Series

With Resilience as the theme, the 2017 Women in Architecture Lecture Series explores how architects, landscape architects, designers, planners and developers are responding to new vulnerabilities surfacing around the world. Join us in our 5th consecutive year, as we examine resilience through the lenses of Civic Culture, Economics and the Environment. Presented on three different evenings in March and April, the series explores questions about resilience in the built environment, solutions that designers are uniquely positioned to offer and what’s on the horizon for resilient design. Continuing education credits are offered for all sessions.
