Video To Be Played at CGI Annual Meeting Depicts Research Collaboration Between AIA and MIT’s Center for Advanced Urbanism

New York, N.Y. – September 25, 2013 – “Design as Long-Term, Preventative Medicine” is the theme behind a compelling new video that repositions the architectural profession as a primary catalyst for making America’s cities healthier places to live and work.

AIA Chief Executive Officer Robert Ivy, FAIA, aptly uses that phrase to describe the strategy architects must employ to make an impact on America’s public health crisis. The video will be played today at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting, where more than 1,000 global leaders are gathering to address CGI’s 2013 theme, “Mobilizing for Impact.”

Invitation for a video interview at the AIA Expo 2013 in Denver

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

AECCafe.Com  is exhibiting at the AIA Expo 2013 in booth #264 on June 20th and 21st. We are recording video interviews at the conference for exhibitors and architects attending the expo. Each interview is typically 3 – 7 minute long. For the exhibitors, we typically ask the following questions and a few follow up questions:

  • Tell us about your company?
  • What are you showing at your booth?
  • Do you want to share any new announcements with the AECCafe audience?
  • How can AECCafe visitors find out more about your company?
The questions can be customized for each company. We record the interviews in front of a green screen and then replace the background with the exhibitor booth picture or some other suitable backdrop. The architects are asked about their company, their recent projects, and about their design philosophy.

The interview is free for AECCafe Member Companies but we charge a nominal amount to other companies and architects to cover our expenses. Contact Sanjay Gangal if you are interested in booking a 15-minute time slot for the interview. You can see past interviews here.

To add a little fun to the conference, we are asking the conference attendees to share a joke in front of the video camera. The best jokes will be edited together in a video montage. The jokes have to be clean and funny.

Here is one of the interviews we recorded last year which has received more than 2,500 views:

Miami is hot and muggy. Evenings are perfect. The beaches are beautiful. People are friendly. I loved it out there.

The 2010 AIA Convention definitely was much better attended than last year’s conference.  We recorded 15 interviews at the 2010 AIA Convention. The interviews are now available at:

Here are the highlights from some of the interviews:
