AIA National Architecture Week is April 10 – 16. National Architecture Week is celebrated the week of Thomas Jefferson’s birthday, which is April 13th. While not educated as an architect, Jefferson is the only U.S. president to be recognized for his architectural affinity. National Architecture Week is a public awareness campaign dedicated to increasing attention to the role architects play as a force for positive change in our communities and to elevate the public’s appreciation of design.
Here are ways you can get involved this year:
- Share the latest #ilookup commercial on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Include messages about the important role architects play in shaping our communities. You can find the video here.
- Participate in a special #AIAChat on Twitter. The chat will take place on Wednesday, April 13 at 3PM EST. Doug Patt, founder of How to Architect, will lead a discussion about career paths for architects that decide to practice outside of the profession. Use #AIAChat on Twitter during the chat day and time to participate.
- Share photos or videos of what architecture means to you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. Use #ARCHWeek16 and #ilookup. Share your favorite architecture quotes, buildings, models, renders, sketches, and more. We will post many of your photos and videos on the AIA National social media accounts during the next several months.
We look forward to seeing everything you share! If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
