VIDEO: 20x20 with Elizabeth Price, AIA
Elizabeth Price is project manager for Upchurch Architects in Brenham and a working mother. Watch a video of her PechaKucha presentation, describing how she strikes a balance between these two roles, and what it's like living and working in a small town.
"Working in a small town means you live with your projects," says Elizabeth Price, AIA. There are wonderful benefits to this — such as being able to have her daughter attend a preschool her team designed, and staying connected with projects and clients — but there are also some interesting challenges. Read: "Not very many boundaries." Watch Price discuss these topics in a PechaKucha she presented as part of 20X20@500 Chicon.
20x20@500 Chicon was hosted by the Texas Society of Architects last fall as part of our 2012 Convention and Design Expo. The full list of presenters included:

PechaKucha 20x20 is a trademarked presentation style devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo’s Klein Dytham architecture. Presenters show 20 images for 20 seconds each, and talk as the slides advance to produce a fast-paced, engaging statement on a particular topic of interest. This format has caught on and spread to more than 600 cities around the globe.
