We are thrilled to welcome these talented individuals to Palmisano:
NEXT CITY VANGUARDS – We welcomed the 2018 Next City Vanguard Conference to our office for brainstorming and breakout sessions as a part of the conference’s annual Big Idea Challenge. The event, hosted by New Orleans Business Alliance, brings together 40 rising urban leaders from around the world whose experience and ambition for the future shows great promise. Over the course of three days, participants have the opportunity to work with New Orleans organizations to devise solutions to local challenges. This year’s Big Idea Challenge spotlights the Claiborne Corridor. Groups will tackle a challenge faced by residents and businesses along the Corridor and offer their solutions. The winning idea will be funded by Next City and implemented in next year.
WOMEN IN ARCHITECTURE – We had a blast hosting the sold out Women in Architecture: a Committee of AIA New Orleans Mentor Night at our office last night. Highlights of the event included an introduction from VP of our Civil Team, Brett Ruppel, an inspiring talk from keynote speaker, Lelia Gowland, a presentation on the design of our office from Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, tours of our space, great conversation with industry friends, and a delicious spread from 1000 Figs.
