The architecture profession is becoming more collaborative every year. In response to this, we at AIA Virginia are excited about embracing this evolution of the profession and are making it the theme for this, our 30th Architecture Exchange East (ArchEx).

Collaboration occurs at all levels of the profession. Collaborating with similar professions projects, working with the public and clients to make sure everyone is on the same page, collaborating within a firm to create the best work possible, and many other places. We are looking at supporting these collaborative efforts at this year’s ArchEx through new partnerships, programs, and opportunities to network. This year will see the continuation of the Branch Museum Tour series as well as educational sessions that focus on collaboration. We will also have some large news to announce regarding collaboration in the coming weeks, so please do keep an eye out for that. Further announcements about the registration dates and pricing, keynote speaker, the panel discussion topic and speakers, tours, and networking events will be coming soon.

We look forward to seeing you in Richmond this November 1-3.
