Stanton Eckstut to speak at the 2012 AIA|LA Design Conference

Who are the design-thinkers evolving the scope of their professional practice?

"Architecture is inspired as much by the public realm as the private ambition. The goal is an iconic place (rather than an iconic building)."

"Buildings always seem to be part of a family, working together to create something more than just satisfying user's needs." - Stanton Eckstut, FAIA

On June 22 & June 23, we invite you to join us at the upcoming AIA|LA Design Conference to hear leading professionals discuss how design adds value by optimizing a return on investment and improving performance, while at the same time enhancing lifestyles and making places healthier and more enjoyable.
