Our keynote speaker this year is nationally-renowned architect and urban designer Robert "Rob" Rogers, FAIA. of New York City-based ROGERS PARTNERS. Rob creates institutional and cultural buildings that are civic works.  Believing that even a single building is a piece of urban design and that every surface deserves intimate attention, his work assertively and elegantly combines urbanism and architecture. From reinventing the security bollard to redesigning a subtle icon on the National Mall, Rob continually elevates accepted conventions in his quest to develop intelligent, rich and timeless contributions to our physical environment. Rob graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Design with a Masters of Design Studies with Distinction.
