September 21, 2010
Beginning September 15th, AIA will be accepting submissions for the Design for Decades initiative. This is an opportunity for the AIA to spotlight outstanding global architectural projects. Projects will be displayed online in a virtual exhibition; selected projects can also be featured in venues such as AIA Headquarters, the 2011 National Convention and, with your cooperation and interest, in your local chapters. We strongly encourage you to make suggestions for other venues where the exhibit could be shown.
The purpose of this undertaking is to feature works of all scales and types that represent the scope and quality of work being done by AIA members. Entries including small, large, commercial, residential, public, private, interiors, historic preservation, engineering, landscape and urban design projects will be accepted.
Ultimately, this will highlight the excellent work done by our members and promote the value of design. It will also serve as a “snapshot in time” that can be viewed by future generations of architects.
Design for Decades is open to all AIA members including associate, international associate and allied members.
Please note there is a $25 entry fee to be paid online. Each project requires a separate and complete submission and fee, with a limit of four per member or firm.
The Design for Decades site will be posted on www.aia.org on September 14. Deadline for submissions is October 27, 2010. Projects selected will be featured in a virtual exhibition and can be used for exhibitions in venues in the US and abroad.
Please spread the word to AIA members and together we can draw attention to and celebrate the diverse work of the Institute’s membership.
Architects are skilled professionals who listen to you, interpret your wishes, help realize your building dreams, and add value at every stage of a project.
