Archinect Sessions

We are joined this week by Scott Frank of Argo Communications. Scott was previously the Senior Director of Media Relations at AIA National, but resigned after the Robert Ivy letter/ #NotMyAIA controversy, as discussed in Episode 89 of Archinect Sessions. We invited Scott to the podcast to discuss his new architect-focused business and general communications strategies for architects, but couldn't resist the opportunity to delve into a behind-the-scenes viewpoint of the national fiasco. As we at Sessions continue to both criticize and actively engage with improving the National AIA's role, Scott offers the perspective of an aligned professional into how architects can direct the news media discussion to better represent ourselves to the public. Warning: This episode contains an even higher level of cuss words than a typical episode. Enjoy!

In this latest episode of Archinect Sessions, Ken and Donna share their experiences and thoughts on the 2017 AIA National Conference. We discuss the conversation with Michelle Obama and the keynotes by Francis Kéré (awesome), Michael Murphy (political), and Elizabeth Diller (meh).  We also address the positive changes displayed by the AIA this year, along with signs of complete lack of evolution by the Institute. Ken and Donna also share their excellent run-in and conversation with Phil Freelon and his wife Nnenna
