Community, Community, Community!
One of the core mission statements of the Young Architect Conference (YAC) has always been:
To have an architecture conference FOR the Young Architect community, BY the Young Architect community.
Over the past 2 years the support for the YAC from the Profession and Architecture Community has been 10 times greater than I have ever dreamed it could be.
In the last few moments before the YAC takes place, I would like to acknowledge all the press we have received, but also share the podcasts and articles about the Members of the Community who will be at the Young Architect Conference. It’s truly incredible.
Before I leave you with a ton of amazing articles and podcasts, I would like to thank the THOUSANDS of people who have been involved with making the YAC Happen. From The Press, Speakers, Workshop Leaders, Attendees, The YAC Committee, People who helped spread the world and anyone who had any conversation with me about the YAC regardless of the context.
The YAC truly is a conference FOR the community, BY the community.
Thank you for being apart of this. I can’t wait to see you in Portland on August 23-25th, 2019!
