Architecture and design fans, this is your week.
In partnership with Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, architects including Page Repp, AIA, Repp Design & Construction; James Richärd, AIA, Richärd + Bauer; Mark Ryan, AIA, Mark Ryan Studio and Matthew and Maria Salenger, AIA CoLAB, will present their work in "Slide Slam" style.
Each architect will have a limited amount of time and slides (think Pechakucha, Ignite, or TED) and will take questions from the audience.
The presentations are free and open to the public, though organizers note that seating is limited. The Slide Slam kicks off at 7 p.m. in Stage 2 Theater.
