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.

In April 2019, COD was in San Francisco for it's annual domestic conference. Check out the conference resources and the pictures!

    Maybe you too received this email. Appearance and aesthetics matter! But, doggone it, get the practical stuff right. Look at the screw holes on this bracket and imagine the sad sound of all the shelves falling to the floor. This is a classic illustration of the value of (not) smart design. With two screws above one, this bracket is an order of magnitude stronger. And 18" spacing? Guaranteed to produce further catastrophe. Doggone it!
