Moderated by Rice University certified meteorologist and author Eric Berger, it will include presentations by the following panelists:

• Ed Wolff – President, Beth Wolff Realtors
The forum is paired with RDA’s annual architecture tour, which presents six buildings located in flood plains. The tour titled H2Ouston: Living in Flood Plains, will take place March 25-26.

IAHmilan17 International Architecture Holiday, Milan, Italy
30 March – 4 April 2017
Archistart, following the success of IAHsummer and IAHrome editions promotes IAHmilan17, an international architecture workshop, incorporated within a holiday, created in order to generate interactive experiences between students and young graduates under the age of 32 years. Fifty young people from all over the world will have the chance to live 5 days full of architecture in the beautiful city of Milan.
Milan is the perfect location for an international event where students from all over the world can meet and work together. This city is now experiencing a modern renaissance, becoming one of the most dynamic cities of Europe. In line with the social policies initiated by the Municipality of Milan and in partnership with Passpartout – network of social enterprises – the theme of the workshop will concern the regeneration of “Casa Chiaravalle” spaces, initiative launched at Cascina Chiaravalle – the biggest asset seized from mafia in Lombardy.
The workshop will focus on the design of a series of interventions on the external and internal spaces, that will give new visions and fresh ideas to the renewal process already started on the property with the primary aim of spreading the feeling of Casa Chiaravalle as a public space among the community of the city. The workshop will be held in conjunction with the “Festival dei Beni Confiscati” (assets seized from mafia festival) and during the period of “Salone del Mobile 2017”.
The innovative aspect of this initiative is the breaking of classical learning processes simultaneously pointing to several factors: integration and cultural exchanges between students from around the world within a single working environment; discover the secret corners of the city; experience first real project situations in close contact with tutors and professionals; experience real competition through an internal competition and fun, assured by the atmosphere and continuous organization of events, parties and initiatives.
Workshop entries will begin 16 January 2017 and will end 20 March 2017.

“The New York City Council is excited to have NYCxDESIGN back for another year to help design communities from all over the world showcase some of the most innovative and diverse designs they have to offer,” said Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito. “We want designers and manufacturers to be inspired by what this city has to offer and use New York City as their blank canvas to put their design in the spotlight. I want to thank the New York City Economic Development Corporation for their efforts to drive economic development through the attraction of more designers to the city.”

‘Drawing on the Motive Force of Architecture: Professor Sir Peter Cook in Conversation with Professor Marcos Cruz’
For architects, drawing is a thinking process. Sketching by hand onto paper without having any predetermined built form in mind is often the springboard for new hypotheses. With the rise of digital representation in architecture, has the computer superseded the hand in the exploration of ideas?
