renowned architectural and interior photographer, as he dives into the
evolution of architectural photography throughout the 20th century and the ways
it has transformed how we see and perceive buildings. Learn about the latest
technology, techniques, and tools used to achieve today's quality photographs,
and how a professional can create their own photographs and use photography to
stay relevant in today’s fast paced, here today, gone tomorrow world.

Behind the Design: Real Life Business
Strategies for Architecture and Development

    I'm Dawn Zuber, chair of CRAN this year, and I have been closely involved in organizing the symposium. The only way you'll be able to obtain any AIA learning units for the event is to either attend in person or watch one of the videos after the event.
    You cannot receive AIA learning units for watching the live broadcast. I would like to see this change in the future, but for now, it's the best we can do. After the symposium, AIA and Houzz will divide up the sessions and some will be available via Houzz and some will be available via AIAU. Watching these recordings and taking a brief quiz will be the only way you'll be able to get learning units, many of which will be HSW.

  • PRO

    Thank you so much for kindly replying to my question. Not looking for the learning units, just interested in watching the video for the information.

  • PRO
    Studio Z Architecture

    Thanks, Design Intervention. I was responding to several people's questions in one post. Some people asked about learning units and whether HSW credits will be given, and I wanted to clarify that they can't be obtained just by watching the live broadcast.

    To respond to your specific question: the videos will be available on AIAU or on Houzz.

    Thanks for the live streaming HOUZZ! I am really enjoying watching it from my office. I had some problems with overlapping audio and I did not realize that all I needed to do was to refresh the screen. You might put that somewhere...

    With regard to getting AIA Learning Units, it appears that the AIA still allows self reporting of courses. So, it seems to me the courses you watched live streamed could be self reported. https://aia.learnflex.net/users/index.aspx

    Thanks Elisabeth,

    Most
    if not all of the CRAN Symposium sessions will be available after the event for
    Learning Units, on AIAU or Houzz. We encourage interested members to
    watch them there to get the AIA/CES Learning Units. Self-reported activities
    are not eligible for HSW LUs.

    Thanks so much houzz for streaming the CRAN Symposium. The sessions I've seen have been great. Makes me wish I had attended in person! I will look forward to seeing the podcasts of sessions I missed this week, and taking the quiz's for CE credits. Will there be a cost associated with this? Will houzz email me with a link when they are available? Hoping so......

    Thanks for tuning in! In a couple of weeks, half of the session recordings will be available for free on Houzz and the others will be on the AIA site. You will be able to receive a learning unit for each session upon passing a quiz. Look out for an email from Houzz. You can also check back here for links to the recordings in a couple of weeks.

    Robert,

    I'm glad you enjoyed the sessions you watched.

    The past 3 symposiums (2014, 2015, and 2016) were all recorded. After each of those symposiums, Houzz and CRAN have divvied up the courses, so some are offered on each platform. You can view and get credit for the following courses on AIAU:

    CRAN Symposium 2014: The New Traditional Houze (panel discussion)

    CRAN Symposium 2014: Traditions of Home (Witold Rybczynski)

    CRAN Symposium 2014: Paradise Planned (Robert A.M. Stern)

    CRAN Symposium 2014: Architect Roundtable: The New Modern House (panel discussion)

    CRAN Symposium 2015: Client Attraction (Enoch Sears)

    CRAN Symposium 2015: Profit... then Art: 12 Steps to Building a Successful Small Firm (Mark R. LePage)

    CRAN Symposium 2015: Elevating the Art of BIM for Residential Design and Practice (Jared Banks)

    I'll post here when the 2016 sessions are uploaded to AIAU. Deepa will have to let us know how to find the recordings on Houzz.

    Please let me know if there are particular speakers or topics you'd like to see addressed at future CRAN symposiums. You can email me directly at dzuber(at)studiozarch.com.
