COLUMBUS, INDIANA, US, April 2, 2024 / -- In Columbus, Indiana, AIA's 6th most Architecturally important city in America, AP Almanac presents the inaugural Perspective International Architecture and Design Festival, scheduled for June 21st & 22nd, 2024.

The architectural allure in Columbus is quite special. In the '60s and '70s, AIA legends were commissioned by J. Irwin Miller to create masterpieces of public spaces. Today, works by I.M. Pei, Eliel Saarinen, Eero Saarinen, Kevin Roche, Richard Meier, and more are nestled within the historic streets. Additionally, Columbus's central location and accessibility make it the ideal destination, with convenient access from major cities and European gateways.

Perspective is a festival celebrating architecture, design, bookmaking, and photography. Professionals from across these fields who practice around the world will share their knowledge in a series of panels, lectures, and workshops in the unforgettable town of Columbus, IN. All individual festival events are included with the admission price and attendees are free to choose activities that best suit them throughout the weekend.

Founded by the renowned photographer, Mike Kelley, celebrated worldwide for his iconic architectural captures, the weekend brings together over ten thought leaders from the architecture and design world to present. The esteemed lineup of speakers includes luminaries such as Celebrity Portrait Photographer, Lynn Goldsmith, known for her victory in the U.S. Supreme Court case: Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. v. Goldsmith, David Basulto, Founder of Arch Daily, one of the most followed and successful architectural websites in the world, and Noah Kalina, Artist and Photographer known for his project “Every day” in which he photographed himself every day for 6 years receiving over 27 Million views. Each brings a unique perspective on the intersection of art, architecture, and design. Kelley hopes to leave attendees inspired and motivated after seeing their profession or passion from a new perspective.

For the first time, architecture becomes both venue and subject matter, weaving seamlessly into the fabric of the cityscape.

Tickets are now available to the public for $600, with special discounts for Columbus residents and architecture students dropping the price to $250.
