The Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) is a Knowledge Community of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We are a large and active group of over 10,000 architects and allied professionals concerned with the quality and design of all types of educational, cultural, and recreational facilities that promote lifelong learning in safe, welcoming and equitable environments. The CAE’s mission is to foster innovative and collaborative design of educational facilities and to heighten public awareness on the importance of learning environments.

The AIA CAE 2013 Educational Facility Design Awards Webinar will share concepts about educational facility planning and design with CAE members as well as others interested in the design of learning environments. The webinar will share ideas that exhibit innovation and excellence of the client's educational program through responsive and responsible programming, planning, and the design of learning environments. In other words, understanding the learning environment beyond the aesthetic where the function and surrounding regional and community context are valued as part of a participatory planning and design process.
In this session you will:
1. Identify and analyze the key educational attributes shaping the design of educational facilities.
2. Compare concepts and evaluate them in the context of real-world examples recognized as exemplary learning environments.
3. Identify and evaluate salient features of the built environments that are emerging in educational facility design that promote engagement among learners.
4. Describe how sustainability and environmental awareness is shaping educational facility design as a regional response as well as provide examples that showcase these features.
