Information on the AIA|DC Emerging Architects Committee’s 2016 Thesis Showcase will be coming soon. Please check back often! 


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

The Emerging Architects Committee’s Thesis Showcase 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 a moderator will take 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:

Cristina Shivers, M.Arch, Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015
Counter-Spaces and Notation Machines

Héctor Bermúdez-Ríos, B.Arch, Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico, 2014
Urban Lab
