AIA Chicago: Anthony Viola, 2017 Dubin Family Young Architect Award Recipient
Wednesday April 18th 2018, 5:45 pm–7:30 pm
Senior Designer and Team Leader at Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG), Anthony works on high-performance projects that focus on the design, development, and use of parametric computational tools that push the boundaries of integrated performance-based design. During his 12+ years of experience, Anthony has designed many structures through this integrated design process. He seeks to find new ways to realize a project using low-tech methods—such as 3D physical models—and high-tech processes like advanced computer simulations. Beginning in 2012 Anthony started a series of quarterly “hack-a-thons” to accelerate and organize research and development at AS+GG. The hack-a-thon’s after-hours format has become a vital, vibrant, and necessary program.
