In an effort to introduce architecture and architects to the children of New Jersey, AIA New Jersey is embarking on AIA NJ Architect’s Storytime. Members can record themselves reading the children’s book of their choice that will teach or inspire the listeners about architecture and architects. Our content will be posted on AIA New Jersey’s YouTube Channel, across our other social media, as well as though the NJ Library System and by the NJ School Board Association.

Their designs respond to client needs, wants and vision, protect public safety, provide economic value, are innovative, inspire and contribute positively to the community and the environment.
