Who we are

The Committee on Design (COD) was founded to promote design excellence among members of the AIA, the broader design community, and the public at large, both nationally and internationally.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the AIA Committee on Design leadership voted to postpone the domestic and international conferences to 2021. The new dates for the conferences are Denver, May 13 to 16, and Singapore, October 9 to 22.

Update from 2020 Chair

Fellow Committee on Design Members,

I hope you are safe and healthy and finding some sense of normalcy in your lives and in your practices.

As the country continues to fight the pandemic and work towards stabilizing the economy in the very present moment, it is also important to look ahead. In my last communication to you, I announced the new dates for the 2021 spring conference in Denver—May 13-16, 2021.

I am happy to report that we have now finalized dates for the fall international conference. I hope you will be able to join us October 9-17, 2021, for a fabulous tour of Singapore’s architecture. We will jump across the equator for an add-on trip to the beautiful island of Bali from October 18-21.

Mark your calendars now!

Until then, be safe and take good care,

Curt Fentress, Chair
