AWAD_Symposium_lowresIn celebration of our 95th year, AWA+D’s symposium entitled IMAGINING LA draws inspiration from the rich history of women who have imagined the future for Los Angeles. Never has it seemed more vital to remember the role women have played in building our metropolis and to amplify our ideas for LA’s evolution in the 21st century.

Our panel gathers some of the most innovative, future-minded practitioners working across the disciplines of urban planning, housing, education, transportation, and policy in our city today to reflect on the lessons of LA’s history since our organization’s founding and to share their optimism for the future: a future where architecture, planning and design will play a critical role.

The symposium includes panelist presentations & discussion, plus AWAF awards ceremony, open bar and luncheon. Meet and mingle with colleagues, peers, and network with future friends and allies in the design, architecture, and allied arts fields.
