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. You can participate on social media and also in local AIA events:
