Woodbury architecture student Tony Lopez has been chosen to present at the 2017 AIAS Crit Live on Saturday, October 14th, 2017 at the University of Arizona. His presentation, titled Transitioning Out Onto the Streets, explores how a home on wheels can be used to house homeless youth and utilize thousands of freeways and local streets in Los Angeles.

The AIAS is excited to announce the second year of its fall research symposia, now titled CRIT Live. CRIT Live aims to accomplish two goals: to provide a platform for AIAS members to present research projects to their peers, and train AIAS members in best practices related to funding, conducting, and presenting research. The events are an effort to provide student members with training opportunities centered on designing, funding, performing, and presenting effective research projects. As research represents an important facet of architecture in both the academy and practice, members obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the profession. Four AIAS Fall Research Symposiums will be held for students in each AIAS Quad.
This year’s series will be held from 9am to 6pm on Saturday, October 14th, 2017:
Northeast Quad: Cornell University (Ithaca, NY)
South Quad: Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA)
Midwest Quad: University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH)
West Quad: University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ)
Each program will consist of two professional keynotes, a research tutorial workshop, and a series of presentations, pecha kucha segments, and panels exhibiting student research projects. Woodbury student Aaron Castaneda wrote about his experience last year at the first annual research symposia at Stanford University:
“The AIAS hosted research symposium was structured to allow us to understand the many aspects of, and the many paths in which we could proceed with an architectural background. Many presentations were given from research in practice and applying to a graduate degree, to research in architectural education. They were all very insightful and educational, and allowed me to understand in-depth the process for applying to a graduate degree and where our education can lead us, including how to apply research to our current studies.”
