YKK AP America is debuting its sixth video—part of the “I am an Architect” series—at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in Orlando this April 27.

This video follows a woman on her journey to become an architect in college and through her visit to Orlando. “The inspirational theme of the video,” said YKK AP America in a press release, “ties into AIA’s K-12 initiative to strengthen the pipeline for future architects, to enhance existing K-12 curriculum and to promote diversity and inclusion into the design curriculum.”

YKK AP America, which designs and manufactures aluminum fenestration systems, collaborated with University of Central Florida (UCF)’s 2+2+2 program and Orlando-based architecture firm HuntonBrady Architects to create the video. (The 2+2+2 program lets students earn an associate’s degree at Valencia Community College, a master’s degree at the University of Florida, and a bachelor’s degree at UCF.)

The first 100 visitors to reach the video’s premier at YKK AP’s booth at the Conference—Booth #3103, April 27, 11:00am—will get an exclusive “I am an Architect” giveaway.
