Renowned architect Antoine Predock to keynote AIAS FORUM 2012
Hosted by Savannah College of Art and Design, event offers learning experiences unique to United States’ first planned city

SAVANNAH, Ga. – The American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) and the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) are pleased to announce that architect Antoine Predock, FAIA, will serve as the keynote speaker for AIAS FORUM 2012. The event is scheduled for Dec. 29, 2012 – Jan. 1, 2013 in historic downtown Savannah, Ga., home to the United States’ first planned city and largest National Historic Landmark District.
Predock is the principal architect for Antoine Predock Architect, PC, based in Albuquerque, N.M., with offices in Los Angeles and Taipei, Taiwan. A son of the expansive American desert Southwest, Predock is known for a design aesthetic that honors the surrounding physical environment, creating a symbiotic relationship among the client, building and natural world. His projects span a diversity of styles and uses, from the famed residential Turtle Creek House in Dallas, Texas, to Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres Major League Baseball team. International projects of note include the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and the National Palace Southern Museum in Taipei.
Predock has been recognized with numerous design awards, including the Rome Prize, the American Architecture Award, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum Lifetime Achievement Award and the AIA Gold Medal, the highest honor an architect can receive from the American Institute of Architects.
“We’re very excited to be hosting Antoine Predock at the AIAS FORUM,” said SCAD architecture professor and AIAS FORUM 2012 faculty adviser Anthony Cissell, Associate AIA. “Predock’s work has had a tremendous impact on the built environment for more than 40 years, and the opportunity to gain insight into the design thinking of such a significant architect will be a highlight of the entire conference.”
AIAS FORUM is the annual meeting of the American Institute of Architecture Students and a global gathering of the world’s top architecture and design students. The event provides students with the opportunity to learn about important issues facing architectural education and the profession, to meet students, educators and professionals with common interests, and to interact with some of today’s leading architects through keynote addresses, tours, workshops and seminars.
