Slay That Dragon!: What Architects do and how to hire them


Is an architect that knight in shining armor you’ve been waiting all your life, or at least since you decided to remodel? Beyond the obvious aesthetic and technical skills architects offer, they can also save clients from project pitfalls that can derail dreams and empty bank accounts.  Borrowing from the mythology of knights slaying dragons, architect and former professor William Hogan will demystify what architects actually do, with playful analogies, case studies, and beautiful imagery.  As part of his presentation, Hogan will illuminate when, how, and why to hire an architect, along with what to expect should you ever choose to work with one. Part of AIA LA 2×8:Exchange. Refreshments, including beer and wine. Q & A to follow.
