The American Institute for Architects is holding their National Convention and Design Exposition (NaCoDeEx for short, right?) this week from June 10-12. It's being held at McCormick Place and will feature a presentation by hot author Erik Larson (he of Devil in the White City fame). In their words, "Whether you’re an architect, designer, landscape architect, engineer, developer, builder, interior designer, educator or manufacturer, this convention brings together all members of the design and construction industry!" Woo-ha!
