Banff Session 2018
May 11 & 12

We are pleased to present Banff Session 2018, the creatives, which will explore where creativity comes from and some of the unexpected sources of inspiration that exist all around us - people, the arts, technology and the unexpected.

Generational Inspiration
We are shaped by the past and influenced by the future. Our elders entrust us with their deep-rooted processes and our contemporaries influence new design trends. Engage with the past, present and future in our ongoing search for inspiration through generational symbiosis.

Arts Inspiration
Professionals in music, design, movement, literature and architecture are passionate about their crafts. We often look to the work of our creative counterparts to spark an idea. Let's explore how we can draw inspiration from professionals that are artists?

Technological Inspiration
Technological innovation expands the bounds of what is possible and inspires us to reach further. Yet it is our imagination that fuels technological advancement. Make the most of this dichotomy and learn how both archaic and new technologies can be used to improve your work.

Unusual Inspiration
Inspiration often occurs in the least expected and most unusual way. We may be inspired by the forms and shapes found in nature, or influenced by everyday experiences. Learn how to tap into unique sources of inspiration that can take your project to the next level. 
Every two years, the Alberta Association of Architects (AAA) hosts a conference that brings speakers from around the globe to share ideas, innovation and ingenuity. Taking place in the breathtaking remoteness of the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Banff Session offers an arena of open dialogue that is unencumbered by workplace pressures and distractions.
