Peter Exley

Architect, Architecture Is Fun in Chicago

Collecting Autographs

PRESENTED ON JUN 26, 2014
IN CHICAGO @ AIA 2014 CONVENTION

Parents are nostalgic for stuff they did as kids and wish that today's children shared the same passions.  Of course, kids today are on to cooler things.  As a child, Peter Exley collected autographs from entertainers, athletes and other celebrities.  In adulthood, he's a little more focused, and nudges famous architects to sign books, napkins and drawings.  He observes that kids today don't have autograph books anymore.
