We’ll explore ideas to redefine the practice of architecture and move our profession forward. The event is happening this October outside of Washington, DC, at the Crystal City campus of 1776 Startup Incubator, a global incubator whose members are bringing new technologies and entirely new business models to market.

The application deadline is July 10.
