    According to Archinect, the newly added 2017 AIA Conference on Architecture speaker Diller will be joining Alejandro Aravena, Francis Kéré, and Michael Murphy this time. The three are the original ones because Diller Scofidio & Renfro's founding partner only got her slot after a controversial open letter.

    The four will be heading to Orlando on April 27-29 for the 2017 AIA Conference on Architecture schedule. They will share their expertise on the discussion's theme: 'Anticipate'-"what it means to anticipate need, challenge, and change in architecture and design."
