Imagine What Could Happen

One would be hard-pressed to list all the many good reasons to attend this year’s AIA Convention – but I’m willing to take up the challenge with some thoughts on the subject. To keep things tidy, though, I’m going to focus on one particular fun aspect of the convention per blog post.

Location, location, location

First of all, it is happening in Philadelphia – a legendary American city known for attitude, passion and perspective. The city itself inspires learning and creativity – a fact evidenced by the number of tours being offered during the AIA Convention. Organizers arranged more than a hundred tours designed to spark your interest, teach you something new, and give you a chance to see the best of Philadelphia.

Off the Beaten Path

KrocExterior-0002-635x367Speaking of tours – we want to call attention to one we’re putting on for convention attendees. A Tale of Two Krocs scheduled for the first day of AIA Thursday afternoon 5/19 from 2p-6p you can tour the Kroc Center – a much-needed community center designed by noted ARCHICAD firm Kitchen & Associates (K&A) in ARCHICAD – the center provides much needed services to the Camden community.

K&A provided comprehensive architectural, engineering and interior design services for the new Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center—a 120,000 square foot, state-of-the-art community facility located on a river-front, former brownfield site in downtown Camden, New Jersey. In January 2004, The Salvation Army USA announced that it would be receiving nearly $1.6 billion from the estate of Mrs. Joan Kroc, (whose husband founded McDonald’s), to establish community centers similar to the one Mrs. Kroc established in San Diego, California. Following a competitive, nationwide proposal process, The Salvation Army regional office in the City of Camden received $59 million of funding. By forging new relationships in the community and partnering with corporate sponsors and political leaders, the Salvation Army was able to secure the additional $31 million to fully fund the project.
