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.

Announcement: 2021 COD Conferences

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the AIA Committee on Design leadership voted to cancel the 2021 Denver conference and postpone the international conference to 2022. Next year's conference dates will be posted once available.

    COTE news: January/February 2021 is out ...

    There's a great letter from the 2021 Chair, Betsy del Monte, and an update on advocacy from Mike Davis. AIA President Peter Exley also chimes in regarding the importance of this moment for AIA and climate action, health, and equity. 

    Also don't miss the piece on COTE's fantastic juries -- for the AIA COTE Top Ten Awards and the COTE Top Ten for Students Competition. We are so grateful to these amazing crews (all tagged below) and to the amazing technical reviewers. They are: Top Ten Awards Jury: Michelle Amt, Renee Cheng, Marlon Blackwell, Erica Hameen Cochran, Lynn Simon. Top Ten for Students Competition Jury: Nader Tehrani, Kate Simonen, Yasmin Kologlu, Ray Huff, and Annanya Das. 

    Last, I hope you will have a minute for my commentary piece in Buildings & Cities journal about architecture education.
