    SAF Lecture:
    The Evolution of Three Architects

    Presented by Jonathan Parks + Joyce Owens + Jerry Sparkman

    Three Gulf Coast architects will each present a project from their early professional life as well as a recent one, followed by an analysis of the contrast and how their development as an architect influenced the changes
    . The remarkable evolution of their careers will be illustrated by what they’ve learned from the design–build process, working with clients, listening to critiques and finding the inspiration that has motivated them to be who they are today.

    A complimentary wine reception will follow the presentation.

    This lecture will provide 2 CEUs to registered AIA members.
