AIA Puerto Rico presented the first seminar of the series to the “Asociación de Productos Hecho en Puerto Rico” (Products Made in Puerto Rico Association). This is one of the island most influential local business organization. The approach of the seminar was simple: “We are architects, how can we help you?”. Based on the mentioned approach, we stand out of the typical and monotonous architecture seminar and we developed a series of seminars that will be focused to the organization to be presented. This means, non of the resources, speakers and approach to the architectural profession will not be same. This help us engage the audience, so they are seen a presentation of architecture that make sense to their business and problems.
This seminar was presented by Ricardo Alvarez, AIA and Jaime Ramirez, AIA. This two architects are the winners of the previous People Choice Awards presented by AIA Puerto Rico. For our chapter, the satisfaction came to hear from the people: “I didn’t know architects could do all that”.
