Architizer’s Kushner to Keynote ArchEx 2017

“A Collaboration is a purposeful relationship in which all parties strategically choose to cooperate in order to achieve shared or overlapping objectives.” — Wikipedia.

Collaboration is part of your daily life as an architect and is the theme for the upcoming 30th annual Architecture Exchange East this November in Richmond. At the keynote address Marc Kushner, AIA, will talk about the lessons he learned in his transition from trained architect, and firm principal, to CEO of Architizer, a venture-funded architecture start-up. These lessons from the tech world will change how you think about architecture, help identify opportunities for innovation in architecture, package new ideas as opportunities for collaboration.

Kushner is partner of the New York City-based architecture firm Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) and the co-founding CEO of the website Architizer — both of which operate with the stated intention of making architecture an accessible part of a public dialogue. “[Marc’s aim] is to push his insular profession toward the mainstream and inspire more people, not just Fortune 500 executives, to seek out its services.” — New York Times, November 4, 2010.

He is a notable speaker, having presented at TED, PSFK, and GRID on topics surrounding architecture’s intersection with digital media. He has taught at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, lectures on the topic of social media and architecture across the country and sits on the boards of Storefront for Art and Architecture and Goods for Good. His 2015 book The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings has been listed at #1 in Architecture on Amazon. Marc’s TED talk titled “Why the buildings of the future will be shaped by … you” has more than 2.5 million views — the 4th highest in the Architecture category — and is listed in Dezeen’s Top 10 TED Talks about architecture.

Anyone interested in changing architecture for the better should attend. Students, young architects, mid-career architects eager to transform the industry, older firm principals with success and time behind them who want to give back.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
