Every two years, I get to spend a long weekend talking architecture shop. It is one of my favorite events to attend: a conference where we gather some great architects, engaging speakings and spend hours looking at their work and all breathing in a passion for design. Despite my gripes about the world around me, the Monterey Design Conference is a fantastic reminder of the brilliant and innovative work being done and the people behind them. It’s heaven on earth for architects (though, I’m not sure how the contractors feel about it).
I have to note that I’m exceptionally excited to hear Jeanne Gang speak, who is not only a tour-de-force in a male-dominated profession, but also a MacArthur Fellow!
Oh and my enjoyment of this weekend isn’t hurt by the fact I’ll be signing my monograph too.
