Mission of Theory Forum Task Force:
Theory is a necessary part of the professional practice of architecture. Above our obligation as professionals to protect the health, safety, and welfare of those that use our buildings, we must also contribute to the richness of life by investing meaning in our designs—meaning informed by our education, our experiences, and the unique character of our region.
The Theory Forum was founded in 2009 by a group of AIA Triangle members dedicated to promoting interest in design as a conceptual pursuit. While local universities and museums play a crucial role inspiring and advancing design thought, the goal of the Theory Forum is to provide a venue for the exploration of critical thought specifically tailored to practicing design professionals and independent of established academic institutions.
