Pioneers in Design

Design for the Future

The IIDA Northern California Chapter Pioneers in Design, which takes place in June each year, honors a pioneer from the broad design community who demonstrates innovation and inspiration, leads novel efforts or breakthroughs in practice or implementation.

Our 2019 Pioneer in Design, John SanGiovanni, has contemplated the future his entire career. He shared his insights and experience as entrepreneur, strategist and inventor, tracing the recent history of immersive computing and its impact on design. Cofounder/CEO of Visual Vocal, John demonstrated the lightweight, cloud-based AR/VR collaboration platform available today for A/E/C. Steve McConnell, Managing Partner NBBJ, led the lively Q+A with audience at SF Jazz. Pre and post event receptions and networking make for a full and entertaining evening.

Our 2020 event has been postponed.

We’ll see you june 23, 2021!
