Mr. Exley Goes to Washington (2019 A+DEN Workshop, Design Matters Conference)

Peter Exley, Co-Founder, Architecture Is Fun

Chicago architect Peter Exley and his wife, designer/educator Sharon Exley, have spent their entire careers designing spaces with and for kids, as well as being champions for professional exchange among architects that is lively and fun. In 2020, Peter joins the American Institute of Architects national board as First Vice President (and President-elect in 2021). He has twice hosted Pecha Kucha programs for the Design Matters Conference; but today, he spends the day with our A+DEN members, and by way of introduction, will lead us on a few of his favorite engagement exercises for investigating design challenges together with young students. Prominent in Exley’s campaign platform for the AIA presidency was an interest in deepening the profession’s commitment to pipeline development.
