Architecture’s Susan Conger-Austin to Participate in AIA Chicago Panel on Architects Balancing Practice and Academic Work

Studio Associate Professor Susan Conger-Austin will be part of an AIA Chicago panel discussion, “Practice What You Preach: Architects Balancing Practice and Academic Work,” on Thursday, February 28, 5:30 – 7 pm.

Architects who simultaneously balance teaching and their design practice reveal the spectrum of benefits and challenges between these two worlds and what is involved in transcending these careers. How do the design curriculum and practice influence each other in this time of world socio-economic change?
