In case a trip to Hawaii wasn't enough of an excuse, here are 5 great reasons to join us in the Aloha state for the 2019 National Symposium.

1. Revisit Hawaii in its heyday.

The modern movement shaped the Hawaiian Islands---and the world's perception of it. Come see some of the 50th state's most iconic midcentury gems and let yourself be transported back in time.

2. Take part in history.

Don't miss the historic opportunity to visit the Hawaii State Capitol building on its 50th anniversary. Designed by John Warnecke, Hawaii's capitol building is the only midcentury modern capitol in the country.


3. Celebrate diversity.

Come see how Hawaii's mix of cultures created a unique, East-meets-West architecture that still holds lessons for designers today.

4. Get insider architecture access.

As a symposium attendee you'll have the opportunity to visit some of Hawaii's most spectacular buildings—that are normally not open to the public. You'll explore masterpieces by Vladimir Ossipoff and other masters of Hawaii's tropical modernism.


5. Pau hana time.

When the work day is done, it's pau hana time—that means you'll be enjoying a mai tai and Hawaii's world-famous sun, surf, and sand, all within walking distance of the symposium hub in Waikiki.
