Banff Session

Every two years, the AAA hosts a conference in Banff, AB that brings speakers from around the world to share ideas, innovation and ingenuity.

Taking place in the breathtaking remoteness of the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Banff Session provides an opportunity for those involved in the practices of architecture and interior design to discuss their work, ideas, beliefs, and attitudes in an arena of open dialogue in a unique context unencumbered by the everyday pressures and activities of the workplace.

Past speakers have included Michael Graves (1983), Robert Stern (1987) and Zaha Hadid (1995) to name just a few.
