CALL FOR PRESENTERS: 2018 OAA Annual Conference

Printer-friendly version

The Ontario Association of Architects invites individuals or organizations to invites presenters to submit proposals for ConEd sessions to be considered for the 2018 OAA Conference: Bold by Design.

The architectural issues of the 21st century will require big thinking and radical approaches. We must use the knowledge and skills of our profession – creativity, design thinking and critical analysis—to challenge existing models and develop innovative approaches to complex problems.
