From March 21 to 24, 2013, CCA played host to the 101st Annual Meeting of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA). Co-chaired by CCA Director of Architecture Ila Berman and Yale University's Ed Mitchell, the conference -- nicknamed ACSA 101 -- welcomed educators and professionals from across the globe to come together and discuss ideas on the leading edge of architectural thought.
