Adrian Ellis participated on the panel Securing Cultural Commissions: rends, Opportunities, and Strategies organized by the American Institute of Architects in New York.
Cultural buildings are becoming more important than ever. The number of museums worldwide has more than doubled in the last two decades. Some $200 billion has been committed to investment in arts districts around the world in the next 15 years. Changing demographics, new technologies, global expansion of cultural tourism, and rising cultural demand in emerging economies are just a few of the factors driving communities and institutions to re-imagine and transform our cultural experiences. A team of experts will examine trends and opportunities in the cultural sector and recommend best practices for securing commissions in this highly competitive market.
