AIA National in NYC
For the first time in 30 years, the national AIA conference returns to New York City. Called A’18 by those in the know, the Conference on Architecture will be held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The 2018 theme, “Blueprint for Better Cities,” focuses on creating inspiring, inclusive and resilient cities and communities that are better by design.
This theme continues through the A’18 Architecture Expo halls. The organizers anticipate 800 exhibitors spanning two floors and two days. The show floors will be open on June 21 and 22, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Conference activities extend into June 23.

See our Brushed Stainless. Our proprietary Brushed Stainless color anodize finish will be the highlight of our booth. Samples will be shown in full-size and available as pocket-size chips. Helping enhance and protect architectural aluminum products, our new finish emulates the clean, bright surface that architects find desirable in stainless steel. Now, a similar look on aluminum can be achieved in a more cost effective, lightweight option with the same industry-leading durability of our other anodize finishes.
Watch for Wood Grain. Offering the beauty of wood without the maintenance, our Gold Series of 14 different Wood Grain Finishes for aluminum also will be on display. Unlike natural wood, the finished aluminum will not swell, rot, warp or attract insects. Architects also appreciate the opportunity to convey the softness and warmth of wood in environments where a hard, cleanable surface is still desired, such as in health care and education facilities, or other high-traffic areas.
Shine with Copper. Many have wished they could have the classic look of copper, without the eventual patina. Our Copper Anodize fulfills such designers’ dreams, offering the look of rich, real copper without such shortcomings as salt run-off stains, galvanic corrosion and patina.
Touch the Terra Cotta. It looks like terra cotta, it feels like terra cotta, but it’s actually aluminum finished in our textured Terra Cotta Painted Coatings. Made with reliable 70% PVDF resin-based coatings, the faux finish delivers exceptional levels of performance and sustainability in a choice of 17 terra cotta colors.
Combine Form and Function. Don’t pick between curves and thermal performance – choose both. We are one of the only finish and service providers to offer thermal improvement services for curved and radius, finished aluminum extrusions backed with an industry-leading warranty. We also can enhance the thermal performance of simple, straight and rectangular shapes, and help meet building team’s goals for energy efficiency.
Take a Sample. We know that color is critical to your project’s success. Whether matching a corporate identity, team uniform or custom palette, we can supply project-specific color chips for any Linetec-specified order or quote.
Watch for more details on the AIA Colorado 2018 Practice + Design Conference. Registration opens soon, and our Linetec representatives already are booked to exhibit on Oct. 11-13 at the Keystone Conference Center.
