YAF Event | Six by Three: Substance Architecture from multiple perspectives

5:30 PM
Center for Architecture & Design | 1801 McGee St., Ste. 100 Kansas City, MO 64108 Map

Hosted by AIA Kansas City’s Young Architect’s Forum, in partnership with Dake Wells Architecture, join us for the first of a new lecture series: Six by Three, which incorporates six projects talked about by three architects, each at varying experience levels, from new grad to Principal. Kicking things off, we welcome Des Moines-based firm, Substance Architecture to Kansas City to speak about their studio and their work.

This new event will challenge the audience to ask the ‘tough questions’ about what it takes to run a project and run a firm. Tim Hickman, AIA, Jessica Terrill, AIA, and Paolo Orlando, Associate AIA will each present two firm projects, with each project viewed through the lens of a topic chosen by audience members. Throughout the lecture, we’ll explore design, the value of our profession, firm culture, and anything that you want to be discussed! Substance has traveled all this way to see you – what do you want to learn from them? Make sure to let us know when you sign up.

Substance Architecture is a collaborative design practice established in Des Moines, Iowa in 2005. The firm brings together the talent and expertise of some of the region’s most recognized design professionals engaged in the disciplines of Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Design. In just 13 years the firm has received over 80 awards for design excellence including 38 from the American Institute of Architects. In 2015, 2016, and, again, in 2017, substance was recognized by Architect magazine as one of the Architect50 – the top 50 architecture firms in the United States in design, sustainability, and business.
