One of the best parts of the AIA's annual convention are the walking tours! We hope everyone had a great time and learned alot at ET105!

Every year there is a diverse offering of tours to choose from. Many even offer Continuing Education credit! This year Layer Founder Zach Soflin was invited to lead a walking tour with a twist: participants would be on a scavenger hunt for existing conditions!


For additional background on preservation & adaptive reuse, one of our Layer users co-led the tour!


With over 25 years of experience assessing existing and historic buildings, Julia has planned documentation and condition surveys for projects of all sizes to support repair and restoration design. Her experience ranges from one—and two-person survey teams for small vernacular structures to large multi-disciplinary teams for federal government projects and state capitals in Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. 

Washington D.C. is an easy place to find a variety of architectural styles, building techniques, and existing conditions to discuss.


By 1PM everyone was exhausted. Thanks again to everyone who joined!
