On The Rise Exhibition | Opening Reception March 26 | 5:30 - 9:00PM FREE at Center for Architecture
Explore the creative designs from rising stars of AIA Philadelphia. On the Rise features work by the 2013 Philadelphia Emerging Architect Prize winning firm, Stanev Potts Architects, and the 2013 Young Architect Prize winners, Brian Szymanik and Denise Thompson. Join AIA Philadelphia at the Center for Architecture for food, drink, friends, and fun to celebrate the opening of the 2014 On The Rise exhibition. As always, this opening reception is FREE! At 6:30pm, Petra Stanev and Stephan Potts will discuss a core of projects showing the range of their firm's work and interests; from a focus on form, surface and light as a visceral experience to a commitment to merging emerging technologies such as 3-D printing, rapid prototyping and off-site fabrication with traditional production methods. Brian Szymanik will also talk about his design philosophy and showcase work from his portfolio. Denise Thompson will also present her designs and working style from her time as an associate at Francis Cauffman Architects.
