AIA Michigan Center for Emerging Professionals and Resources (CEPR) hosted the first Vision 20x20 event at the Liberty Research Annex (a.k.a. Liberty Loft Glasshouse) during the Art Fair (Thursday, July 21 7.30pm). The theme of the event was Emerging Design for a New Century and ten speakers from creative fields including architecture, graphic design, interior design, landscape architecture and visual arts were given six minutes and twenty slides to present their take on the theme. The opening act, a digital violin performance by Dixon’s Violin, was a perfect antidote to the ninety-nine degree heat spell and drew much interest from passers-by on Liberty Street. Despite the record temperature, the event was well-attended by a diverse group of attendees consisting of local architects, students and the public. AIA Huron Valley’s Design Award Boards on exhibit also drew plenty of attention. CEPR thanks all of our volunteers and sponsors, in particular AIA Huron Valley volunteers / CEPR leadership (Kristen Schleick, Nicole Eisenmann and Phil Proefrock) and Structural Design Incorporated whose generous sponsorship of the CEPR program made this event and other emerging professional programs possible.
