Peter Q. Bohlin

Principal, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Peter is one of the founding principals of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, which began practice as Bohlin and Powell in 1965. The firm’s success, and the professional recognition it has attained, are in large measure attributable to his design insights and unflagging dedication to setting the highest standards for all design work produced by the firm. His leadership and inspiration have established a culture of thoughtful, thorough design thinking throughout the practice, and he remains keenly interested in both broad conceptual thinking and detail expression, reviewing the development of design and documentation regularly with project teams. In 2010, the American Institute of Architects awarded Peter with the Gold Medal, the highest honor for an individual in the profession. Accreditation: FAIA
Learning Units:  1.5 LU – AIA CES Learning Units are pending approval

AIA Ohio Convention 2016

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
We have two keynote speakers scheduled during the AIA Ohio Convention in Akron.  On Thursday, Oct. 6, convention attendees will hear from Jane Weinzapfel, FAIA, from the AIA National Gold Medal Firm (2007) of Leers Weinzapfel Associates in Boston.  Jane is a design leader in campus academic facilities and campus design in general, and has a special expertise in award-winning infrastructure and transportation design. Dedicated to the craft and technology of design, she has led many of the firm’s investigations of new materials and systems.  Jane has been a Visiting faculty member at MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning and at the University of Arizona College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, where she was on the Dean’s Advisory Committee. In 2002 she was a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome. She lectures and participates on design juries widely throughout the United States, Italy, and the Middle East. She has been a Design Critic and Lecturer at several universities in the U.S. and abroad.
On Friday, Oct. 7David Riz, FAIA, from Kieran Timberlake in Philadelphia will join us offering a keynote presentation as well as his perspective as the jury chair for the AIA Ohio Design Awards.  David practiced architecture in Japan and taught design in Taiwan prior to joining Kieran Timberlake in 1999. He has led projects that employ experimental construction methodologies with radically altered supply chains and lofty sustainable goals.  Focusing on promoting open, collaborative exchanges that foster design, David has significant experience with the large-scale integration of architecture, landscape, and the public realm. He was responsible for several campus projects such as the Northwest Campus Housing Infill at University of California Los Angeles; a master plan for a new Liberal Arts Campus for Yale University and the National University of Singapore; and the West Campus Residential Initiative at Cornell University.

The 2014 AIA Ohio Convention

The 2014 AIA Ohio Convention

“A Future Practice” 

September 18 – 20, 2014

Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center

Kent, Ohio

AIA Ohio, in collaboration with host chapters AIA Eastern Ohio and AIA Akron will be hosting the 2014 AIA Ohio convention at Kent State University on September 18 – 20, 2014. Working together with members of the profession from throughout Ohio, this years convention will be the first time that AIA Ohio has worked to bring its annual convention to the site of one of the states architectural programs.  

This years theme, “A Future Practice” focuses on careers, business and practice opportunities for those who are just entering the architectural profession as well as long time practicioners looking for ways to change their existing practices.  Centered out of the Kent State Hotel and Conference Center, the convention will focus on the connection of practice to the academy as the profession is redesigned.

As we work to reposition the AIA, we hope that you will plan on joining us this September as we connect Academy and Practice.
