Hosted by the ICAA Florida Chapter | 1 AIA CES Learning Unit|Elective
Join the ICAA FL Chapter for our Architecture & Design Lecture Series focusing on timeless collaborations between architectural, interior & landscape design professionals in pursuit of creating a classic. As we announce our Call for Entries for our 12th Addison Mizner Awards (AMA) this month, we are delighted to offer this unique opportunity to shed light on collaborations within our own ICAA FL Chapter membership, many of which are also past Addison Mizner Award Recipients. This lecture will feature a panel with Victoria Hagan, Daniel Kahan, Peter Papadopoulos, and Mario Nievera, moderated by Mitch Owens.
These dynamic conversations between our panelists, moderated by Mitch Owens, will foster a broader understanding and appreciation of the collaborative process in Architecture & Design, its enduring impact in our work & lives, in terms of improving the built environment, and our sense of community in the design profession.
Our three lecture panels of ICAA FL design talent, all of which have a history of design collaborations, will discuss their AMA projects and others, include storytelling, discuss process, and highlight beautiful work through engaging conversation with the moderator and each other. Slides to be used throughout.

Kahan prides himself in the synthesis of classical order and form with modernist simplicity.

After completing his architectural studies, Peter spent time traveling abroad before settling in Palm Beach and beginning his architectural practice in 2000. Since that time he has applied his unique background and knowledge to numerous successful projects in both classical and modern styles.
