More people should be so lucky as to spend a day with the Exleys, the spirited husband and wife team behind Architecture Is Fun. We recently met up with Peter, FAIA, and Sharon who run their architecture and design firm in Chicago, creating spaces for children of all ages that are distinguished by beauty, art, and form. What we quickly learned is that the Exleys make the design process “fun” because they’re great listeners and creative problem-solvers. You can't help but feel inspired by these playmakers.
Catch Peter at the Vectorworks Design Summit
If you want to hear more from Peter, catch his breakout session at our April 27-29 Vectorworks Design Summit at the Sofitel Philadelphia hotel. Approved for 1 AIA LU credit, Peter's session on "Thinking Through Your Sketches" will prove that BIM software isn't just a design and production tool; rather, it's adept at helping the smart architect tell a compelling story. Peter will demonstrate a back and forth workflow between analog and digital tools, leveraging familiar software and conventional hand drawings to create captivating 3D sketches that communicate evolving design solutions to clients and AE colleagues.
Bringing together architecture, landscape, and entertainment design visionaries, Vectorworks software engineers, and global partner product providers, the Vectorworks Design Summit will provide dynamic keynote presentations, plus engaging thought-leadership breakouts, product development insight, fun evening events, and training to help attendees make the most of Vectorworks software. There's also a special Customer Appreciation Party on April 28 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. View agenda and speaker details here.
