Looking for Ten Firms

This year’s Giving Back track will feature programs that focus on the ways architecture and design thinking have been used to benefit individuals, communities, and the world. How does your firm give back? What is your favorite pro-bono project story?

One of the many programs we are preparing is a PechaKucha-style presentation (pronounced Petch-aa Koo-chaa) highlighting the philanthropic work of our firms. PechaKucha is a style of presenting where 20 slides are automatically queued for 20 seconds each while a presenter speaks. The result is a series of 6 minute-40 second presentations that are thoughtfully presented to communicate only the most relevant aspects of the work.

We are looking for 10 firms throughout the state to participate. We are particularly interested in hearing from our young professionals.  If your firm is interested in participating, please complete this form by July 7.
