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.
It's great to see mainstream media coverage of design excellence as defined by the 10 measures of the AIA Framework for Design Excellence and the metrics required by the AIA COTE Top Ten Awards, now in its 23rd year.Congratulations to the architects, the client/owners, the communities, and the engineers and other consultants who created these exemplary projects. They have many lessons to share.
