eMagazine #40/15: Catalan-Architects |

Barcelona conference organizer Sophia Gruzdys AIA, with Dominique Tomasov of Barcelona, recommend reviewing 29 September 2015 issue of World Architects e-magazine, which "follows [the] proposed conference itinerary very closely."

World-Architects is excited to announce the launch of Catalan-Architects, the seventeenth platform under the World-Architects umbrella. The regional Catalan-Architects platform recognizes the amazing quality of buildings and landscapes produced in the region anchored by Barcelona. This special issue of the World-Architects eMagazine, entirely devoted to Catalonian architecture, celebrates the platform's launch with profiles, projects, events, and articles that provide some historical context, trace the evolution of developments in the region, and cover the various ways that Barcelona and its environs continue to be unique architecturally.

4th of July…err, September

Most of the group
The France section held its annual 4 July picnic on 4 September this year. Avoiding the 104°F (40°C) heat in July, it was unusually cool, making the food and drink arranged by the France section director Michael Shamieh, plus contributions by those attending, all the more important.

Transit in Vienna

Les Jordan AIA, chair of the Vienna conference committee, has this to say about transit for the Vienna conference:

For those arriving by plane, two methods for travel into the city center are recommended:
  1. The CAT train costs €10 and the trip takes 15 minutes. 
  2. Taxi direct to city center hotels — expect to pay about €35-40.
Attendees for the full conference will receive a 72 hour transit pass for you during the conference during onsite registration. Weekend attendees will receive a 48 hour pass. 
Additional information regarding conference locations is available now on the conference web page. See the resources menu on the upper right >

The pace of registration is quickening — register and book housing this week instead of racing against the calendar. Details of the conference, where a full registration can earn 18 AIA CES LUs are at
