The following is a description from AIA detailing Virgil Abloh as the keynote speaker for its 2020 Conference on Architecture in Los Angeles on Thursday, May 14.

You may know Virgil Abloh as the current artistic director for Louis Vuitton’s menswear collections. Or for his much-anticipated Ikea collaboration, called MARKERAD, released through the brand’s international stores last November. Or for his 2019 “Figures of Speech” exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. And these are only a few highlights from his critically-acclaimed career.
