Many aspiring architects yearn for the opportunity to discuss the field with experts, and they now have the chance to do so at the Appetite 4 Architecture dinner in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Frank Harmon, an industry expert and professor at the North Carolina State University College of Design, is the latest professional to announce that he will be attending the event. The Triangle Modernist Houses (TMH) group will host the dinner in the beginning of February for the general public to discuss design with local architects.

Tickets to the event are $49 per person, and proceeds will go to the North Carolina chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA-NC). The organization plans to use the money to construct a new building for operations. David Crawford, the executive vice president of AIA-NC, will be in attendance at the event.

TMH founder and director George Smart said that there will be no presentations during the dinner, but he plans to address the green development process for the new AIA-NC building.

This event may motivate more individuals to pursue their dreams of entering a career in design. Employment in architecture is projected to increase by 16 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
