//about the event

This presentation was organized by the AIA:Chicago Foundation at the Chicago Design Museum and features their 2017 Young Architect award winner Anthony Viola.

-from AIA:Chicago website:

Anthony Viola, AIA, was awarded the 2017 Dubin Family Young Architect Award from the AIA Chicago Foundation, an award established in 1983 to recognize excellence in ability and exceptional contributions by Chicago area architects between the ages of twenty-five and thirty-nine.

Senior Designer and Team Leader at Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG), Anthony works on high-performance projects that focus on the design, development, and use of parametric computational tools that push the boundaries of integrated performance-based design. During his 12+ years of experience, Anthony has designed many structures through this integrated design process. He seeks to find new ways to realize a project using low-tech methods—such as 3D physical models—and high-tech processes like advanced computer simulations. Beginning in 2012 Anthony started a series of quarterly “hack-a-thons” to accelerate and organize research and development at AS+GG. The hack-a-thon’s after-hours format has become a vital, vibrant, and necessary program.

On February 9, 2018, national AIA announced recipients of its 2018 AIA Young Architects Award, which is administered by the AIA College of Fellows, and Anthony is one of them. Come and hear from Anthony where he began, how he got where he is, and what he plans to do next.
