Congratulations to Britni Jessup of Rowell Brokaw Architects and Karen Williams of Pivot Architecture for being selected for this year's 20 Under 40 Awards.

The 20 Under 40 awards recognize promising people in the local business and nonprofit community — residents who excel in their careers while taking time to help with charitable and civic causes. Nominations are made by the public, or friends and business associates. Winners are chosen by a panel of judges, including previous 20 Under 40 winners.

2017 AIA-SWO Professional Pin-Up @ UO

AIA-SWO would like to invite you to present in January at our annual Professional Pin-Up, at Lawrence Hall (UO). The format of the presentation is similar to an academic studio review.  Multiple firms will be presenting concurrently, with rotating reviewers comprised of students, faculty, and local professionals.  

Give future architecture interns the opportunity to witness ‘real life’ project design processes from local and regional architectural, planning, construction, and engineering professionals.  Showcase your projects during any phase of design and/or construction.  Invite multiple professions involved with the project to present and discuss how collaboration affects design.

Respond to if you would like to participate or learn more.  Thank you!

You're invited to join the next gathering of the Small Firms' Roundtable in the Eugene-Springfield area.

Date: Thursday, Dec. 8, 2016
Time:  5:30pm
Place: 2form Architecture, 121 Lawrence St, Eugene
What: Light refreshments, conversation, brainstorming

Questions? Stan: 541-501-5353
