Zarith Pineda, TSA 15 exhibits in Emerging Architects Committee: Thesis Showcase

Aug 26, 2015

Please join the AIA|DC Emerging Architects Committee for the second annual AIA|DC Thesis Showcase. Five recent Bachelor of Architecture and Master of Architecture graduates from schools around the country will present their thesis projects to members of the AIA and the public.

This program aims to bridge the gap between recent graduates and practicing architects by providing an opportunity for practitioners to view a sample of the work emerging from architecture schools.  Each presenter will speak for approximately 10 minutes, after which an emcee will moderate questions from the audience and help to draw connections between the thesis projects.

Before and after the presentations there will be a networking reception with opportunities for conversation between the presenters and attendees.  The presenters will include:
