Build On: Inspiration and Knowledge for Making Entrepreneurial Ideas Happen

Build On: Inspiration and Knowledge for Making Entrepreneurial Ideas Happen

The Chicago Architectural Club Announces the follow up event to The Un-Competition Project: Build On, January 19th at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

The Un-Competition Project asks architects and designers to invent a project, design it, and figure out how to get it built.  The intent is to emphasize design entrepreneurship and built work.  Both are commonly overlooked yet essential in establishing oneself in the profession.  But what does it mean to be a design entrepreneur?  And how do you get work built if you’ve never done it before?  Who will answer those taboo questions related to venturing out on your own?  Probably not your boss.

Build On: Inspiration and Knowledge for Making Entrepreneurial Ideas Happen, will answer these questions and more.  The event will begin with an announcement of the Un-Competition Project winners.  Then, within the framework of the Un-Competition Project winners, the panel will discuss strategies for making these design solutions reality.  Then the the discussion will broaden to include topics solicited from the audience - marketing your work, getting it built, and establishing a design firm.  We will even touch upon fees and moonlighting.

Participation in the Un-Competition Project is not a pre-requesite for attending Build On.  In fact, if you have a scenario you would like the panel to discuss, contact Alan Barker to get on the evening’s docket: [email protected]

Come to engage the panelists or simply to listen and learn.  The event is free, but requires registration using this link:http://eepurl.com/hy1EE
