The event will be free and open to the public, between March 31st and April 4th from 5PM to 11PM, so please come join us for 5 days of intense architectural discussion, debate, live interviews, networking and fun. I would love to meet our readers from LA, so please please please drop by. There´s even a special rate for people who wants to stay at the hotel for the event (see end of the post).
We have an amazing list of speakers invited by the hosting blogs: ArchDaily/Plataforma Arquitectura, BLDGBLOG , City of Sound, Subtopia , Mudd Up!, We Make Money Not Art . Saturday will be devoted to discuss about media (web 2.0, photography, copyright, blogs, etc), followed by a closing party.
We are going to conduct live interviews with architects previously featured on ArchDaily, including questions from the audience: Yo-Ichiro Hakomori (wHY Architecture), Dwayne Oyler & Jenny Wu (Oyler Wu Collaborative), Whitney Sander (Sander Architects), Sarah Johnston & Mark Lee (Johnston MarkLee) and Austin Kelly (XTEN Architecture).
For those of you who can´t attend, I will still let you participate: If you´ve got specific questions for one of these architects, please leave them on the comments and i will try to include them as audience questions. Also, what would you prefer? Live blogging or a daily report? Please give me feedback.
p.s.: I will be at San Francisco between April 6th-11th, interviewing local practices. Any tips are welcome, and if any architects from the area wants to meet just let me know.
