Who We Are

The mission of the AIA Small Firm Exchange (SFx) is to advance the mutual interests of architects practicing in small firms. The objectives of the AIA SFx are three-fold:

     1. Advocate the value of small firms, the national SFx, and local
         SFx groups, both within the AIA and to the public.
     2. Curate and disseminate the most pertinent resources and
         information, from the AIA & elsewhere, that benefit small firms.

     3. Inform the AIA of current issues facing small firms and areas
         in which current resources/information are lacking.

Approximately 75% of all firms within the AIA are small firms (10 employees or less), which equates to 14,288 small firms within the organization. 

~25% = sole practitioners = 4,750

~35% = 1-5 employees = 6,650

~15% = 5-10 employees = 2,850

We need to find ways to leverage that size for collaboration and influence, just like the individual large firms do.

Be sure to "Join our Community" !  This will ensure that you're a part of our mailing list and receive our quarterly newsletter and important small firm information.

Adaptive Reuse Excellence / Models to Define Value / a COD and HRC session for HSW LUs

  • 1.  Adaptive Reuse Excellence / Models to Define Value / a COD and HRC session for HSW LUs

    Posted 09-13-2021 05:21 PM

    Join Committee on Design (COD) and Historic Resources Committee (HRC) on Wednesday September 29th at 1pm ET in an exploration of exemplary case studies of adaptive reuse projects including a 2020 COTE Top Ten Award recipient, that showcase creativity and sustainability principles.

    Adaptive reuse projects can incorporate sustainable design principles, while also showcasing creativity and innovative design in existing buildings. In the larger framework of sustainability and community well-being, adaptive reuse projects can breathe new life in existing buildings, continuing their histories into the next building chapter. This event will exhibit several case studies as a way of both inspiring design excellence in adaptive reuse projects as well as demonstrate the role the built environment has in communities.
