Scholarships For Aia Architects At Marmomacc In Verona, Italy

The sixth edition of the Veronafiere's AIA-approved Continuing Education course, co-sponsored with Stone World magazine, will be held Wednesday, October 6 through Saturday, October 9, 2004, during Marmomacc, the world's leading trade fair for the marble and stone industry.

The course, “Designing with Natural Stone” provides a comprehensive overview of architectural stone applications. Architects learn how marble is quarried, treated, cut, selected for specific jobs, and then installed using the latest products and technologies. The course will include field trips to a quarry and stone cutting factories, a tour of Palladian villas, and ample time for a thorough exploration of Marmomacc.

AIA architects are eligible to compete for scholarships covering tuition, meals, accommodations and local transportation. Those selected will be responsible for their travel to and from Verona, as well as for a $300 administrative fee. Participants should plan to arrive in Verona on Tuesday, October 5 in time for a welcoming dinner and may depart Sunday, October 10.

This program has been offered for the past five years and has generated such comments as: “One of the most informative continuing education programs I have attended.” - John Stephenson, Thompson Ventulette and Stainback & Associates (Atlanta); “I found this a memorable course. The technical content was accurate and excellent.”- Louise Addonizio, Perkins and Will (New York); “I thought it was a fantastic program; well worth the time.” - John Coons, Sasaki Associates (San Francisco).

Architects selected will earn about 20 AIA/CES learning-unit hours. Many classes will provide HSW credits. Those interested in applying should send a curriculum vitae and a cover letter specifying why they wish to participate no later than June 30, 2004 to Melissa Petersen at The Consultants International Group; E-mail:; Fax: 202-393-4655.
