AIA OVR 2019 Convention

September 19 – 21, 2019
Cincinnati, OH | Hilton Netherland Plaza

“BUILDING WELLNESS” has been designed to address the ways in which principals of healthy, sustainable and resilient design impacts the quality of life for real people in the places where we live and work. We’ve compiled a wide range of stakeholders from government, civil society, academia and the business community to explore the ways in which the work of architects contributes to healthy people, healthy communities and healthy environments.

Our schedule includes workshop content to address specific professional interests, foster multi-disciplinary collaboration, and inspire individual action that will improve communities, projects and practices in the region.

Join us in Cincinnati September 19-21 for the 2019 AIA Ohio Valley Convention.

AIA Ohio Valley Region Practice Innovation Lab

Learn More HERE
SIGN UP ONLINE by August 23


The AIA Ohio Valley Region Practice Innovation Lab is an event where teams comprised of students, associates, architects, Fellows, and other seasoned professionals come together to answer one simple question:  With so much of the world in flux, through changes to climate, technologies, and construction techniques, how will architects adapt ways of practicing that will advance the profession?

The PIL will consist of teams of 5-7 individuals of any member category from each component in the OVR. You can register as an individual, or you can register a team (up to six people).

On September 19th, teams will convene in Cincinnati for a full day workshop to develop concepts into presentations. On Friday, Sept. 20, teams will present their vision at the Ohio Valley Region Convention Keynote session. Convention attendees will select a People’s Choice award and prizes will be given.
