For 2012, AIA|LA has programmed its annual Design Conference to recalibrate an architect's understanding of the potential for place and practice emerging from dramatic changes in technology and culture within a slowly recuperating economy. It is one thing for the profession to aspire to enhance social, cultural and economic value and another to take advantage of new tools, strategies and opportunities to achieve it. This symposium opens up discussion on how we can accelerate how that might be done.

The two day session is organized as a series of moderated interactive panels and presentations representing various point of view and experience. Day 1 sets the context by introducing key changes affecting both the physical context and approach to practice and Day 2 looks at implementing innovation - from policy to new forms of architectural practice.
