A'20 AIA Conference on Architecture

Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, California

Every year the Conference on Architecture travels to an iconic city for three immersive days of what’s new and now in architecture and design. This year we’re heading to Los Angeles, a city whose architecture has been described as a “visual feast,” a “wonderland,” and “stunningly beautiful.” And it’s no wonder, with gems like Norms La Cienega, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Case Study House #22, Pacific Design Center, the Broad Museum, and many more.

Registration is now open. New AIA members get free registration!
