35th Architecture in Perspective International Virtual Conference


HELD:Oct.16-17, 2020
This year’s Architecture in Perspective Conference will take you through an eclectic journey in architecture with many stops along the way: drawing, film, photography, screen printing and performance. The experience will be soulful, colorful, joyful and above all, coolful. (Yup, we just invented a word, that’s how inspired we are.)

Let’s see what YOU’LL be inspired to create after attending the conference.

Hosted by ANCB The Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory in collaboration with the American Society of Architectural Illustrators (ASAI) and the Tchoban Foundation – Museum for Architectural Drawing. 

For the first time, ANCB is hosting the Architecture in Perspective International Conference. The conference is held every year as part of the American Society of Architectural Illustrators (ASAI) programme. This year ASAI invited ten panelists, who explore the field of architecture and architectural illustration consisting of film, photography, performance, storytelling, conceptual ideas, academic and built environment. Each of them talk about the work in a pre-recorded video session. For two days, the viewers are invited to participate, engage in a dialogue, exploring the potentials that shape the future of architecture and architectural presentation.
