The desert environment series started in 2008 by Alumni Alex Barragan as a Forum to discuss ideas on Engineering, Architecture, Industrial Design, Education and the Arts as they influence Arizona’s Most Spectacular Environment.

The concept behind this month long event is:
*To ENCOURAGE the study of the great disciplines of Engineering, Architecture, Industrial Design, Education and the Arts.
*To EXPLORE new ideas, re-sharpen our imaginative skills and find ways to develop hidden talent.
*To REORGANIZE our studios, our business, or to take our projects to the next level.
*To APPRENTICE with the experts in the field of your interest.
