The AIA Austin Design Excellence Conference delivers dynamic content through renowned keynote speakers, inspiring breakout sessions, and local project tours, all focused on sustainability, resiliency, and inclusive design through the lens of AIA’s Framework for Design Excellence. Conference attendees can earn 18+ LUs over the two-day conference, fulfilling HSW and ADA annual requirements for TBAE licensure and AIA membership.
This year’s conference will be held on August 14-15 with the theme “The City We Want; the City We Deserve.” Touted internationally as one of the most desirable places to live and work, Austin is increasingly unaffordable, segregated, and inequitable. Our decisions as designers must meet the need for change, innovation, and equity. The theme is intentionally broad, embracing discussions about emerging technologies, code changes, housing solutions, and sustainability.
