The New Jersey chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) is pleased to announce 2023 New Jersey Architecture Week will be celebrated April 16th through April 22nd.
AIA New Jersey 2023 President, Ron Weston, AIA, lauded Governor Phil Murphy and Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver for co-signing the recent State of New Jersey Proclamation designating this weeklong celebration of architecture and architects in the Garden State.
Weston quoted an excerpt from the Governor’s proclamation stating that “architecture influences the daily lives of all New Jersey residents through the definition and enhancement of the areas in which we work, play, and live; and…architects have helped create New Jersey’s unique visual character through their innovative and responsive designs of public and private spaces.”
He went on to highlight the fact that in addition to being creative “problem solvers” improving our built environment architects are also uniquely entrusted by the state to protect public
health, safety, and welfare.
2023 New Jersey Architecture Week will feature a series of events and content from each of the AIA NJ Chapter’s six regional section components, extending from south to north. The final
day of the weeklong program will coincide with Earth Day 2023 on April 22nd. The intentional overlap with Earth Day is fitting given the very high priority of climate action and environmental
stewardship at the AIA, and strong clean energy and sustainability initiatives by the State of New Jersey.
