A Partnership of AIA Los Angeles and USC Architecture: BIM EDGE + BIM GAP
August 22–23, 2014
BIM GAP will feature presentations about the bridging GAPs between BIM tools (analysis, construction, facilities management, and more) and also bridging the GAPs between BIM people (contractors, architects, owners, managers, subs, consultants). Learn how professionals are dealing with these gaps towards realizing the full potential of BIM. Who do you call when you need BIM guidance? EDGE examines potential partners in working with BIM beyond your firm’s current capabilities: BIM coordinators, consultants, modeling services, others.

Architecture and the City Festival
September 1–30, 2014
The American Institute of Architects, San Francisco chapter (AIA San Francisco) and the Center for Architecture + Design announce the 11th annual Architecture and the City festival, the nation’s largest architectural festival of its kind. Taking place in San Francisco every September, the month-long celebration features behind the scenes and walking tours, films, exhibitions, lectures and more, providing opportunities for participants to engage with the local architecture community and experience design in a myriad of ways throughout the city. The 2014 Architecture and the City festival theme, Home: My San Francisco, will examine the shifting nature of home, the different elements that contribute to its definition, and its relation to the urban fabric. Over 40 festival programs will explore the cultural richness and diversity of our local architectural and design community as well as provide a platform for conversation about our changing landscape and its implications for a city in a time of rapidly intensifying housing needs.

Web Exclusive: A Conversation with Jill Paider

For our March/April urban design issue, FORM features the stunning work of photographer Jill Paider. As a special Web extra, we had the chance to talk to her about her career and philosophy. Look for more special FORMmag.net-only features in the coming days, weeks and months.

Now highly-sought after and specializing in architecture, travel and food, Jill Paider didn’t set out to be a photographer. After grad school at the London School of Economics, where she received a Master’s in world politics, Paider was just about to take a job when her plans hit a major snag. “Right before I was supposed to start, I found out that my work permit didn't go through,” she recalls. “I enrolled in a post-graduate photography program at the ninth hour to maintain my UK visa. I fell in with photography shortly thereafter and have been doing it professionally ever since.”

In her 10-plus year career, assignments for advertising agencies, design firms and magazines have taken the LA–based Paider to 50 countries and recently included a self-led, around-the-world architecture trip—a career highlight. Shooting architecture appeals to her because “I love modern design and the art of capturing a space and telling its story,” she says. “I aim for images that are emotive and give the viewer a definitive sense of place.

She’s hard at work on an editorial shoot at the moment but still finds time to focus on her own projects. “Personal work is what art buyers and clients ultimately want to see,” she notes. You can check out more of Paider’s professional work on her Web site and blog, along with more of her own work, including a selection of Instagram shots from her iPhone. To see her work in our new issue, become a print or digital subscriber here.
