Ohio Valley Region Practice Innovation Lab

This summer, the AIA Ohio Valley Region, with the support of the Young Architects Forum and National Associates Committee, is hosting a Practice Innovation Lab (PIL) workshop. The workshop consists of an all-day workshop and keynote presentation in Cincinnati in tandem with the OVR Convention.

The PIL will consist of teams of 5-7 individuals of any member category from each component in the OVR. Teams will meet in Cincinnati on September 19 for a full-day workshop to develop concepts around innovation. On September 20, teams will present their vision at the OVR Convention Keynote session. Convention attendees will select a People’s Choice award and prizes will be given.

The Ohio Valley Region hopes to recruit at least one team from each component, chapter, and section in the region. AIA Cincinnati wants to represent well and would like to send 3 teams to participate.


Young architects, associate architects, Fellows, and students from the Region’s NAAB Accredited Schools of Architecture are welcome. All teams must include at least one Fellow and one Student.

Friday, Sept. 20, 2019 – Presentation keynote at the AIA Ohio Valley Region Convention
