The AIASF Mentorship program opens the 2016 series with Anne Fougeron, FAIA of Fougeron Architecture, as Keynote speaker. She brings personal insight on the influence of mentorship over an architect’s career. Anne participated in the AIASF Mentorship program in 2010.

Together with the AIASF Mentorship committee, the program will also include an overview and brief history of the AIASF Mentorship Program, as well as how to get involved. Information will include registration instructions; upcoming events for the program, and a brief Q&A session featuring some program alumna.

This event is for people interested in cross mentorship, dialogue and professional development and is open to non-members. Mentorship Groups are formed between 4-6 architects, intern architects, and sometimes closely allied professions at various career levels. Due to the program's popularity and space limitations at AIASF, we ask that you cancel your registration in advance if you are unable to attend.

About the Speaker

Anne Fougeron, FAIA, is principal of Fougeron Architecture based in San Francisco. She worked for San Francisco architect, urban designer, and mentor Daniel Solomon for three years, an experience that informed her awareness of the interplay between buildings and the urban environment. In 1986 she founded Fougeron Architecture and has continued to design award-winning private- and public- sector projects in a decidedly modernist vocabulary.

As a nationally recognized firm, Fougeron Architecture exhibits design work with a strong commitment to clarity of thought, design integrity, and quality of architectural detail. The firm's decidedly modernist attitude is the result of founder Anne Fougeron's vision of creating a practice dedicated to finding the perfect alignment between architectural idea and built form.

Ms. Fougeron's keen interest in crossing disciplinary boundaries continues to lead the firm to develop a collaborative creative process that capitalizes on her relationships with craftsmen and artists who are experts in their fields. Contrary to more traditional practices, the firm does not separate between the design and production parts of the work process, preferring to believe that the process of design and innovation must continue through all phases of design and construction.
