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 cancel the 2021 Denver conference and postpone the international conference to 2022. The domestic conference is scheduled for spring 2022 in Los Angeles and the international conference is scheduled for fall 2022. Dates will be posted and shared once available.
The Collaborative Achievement Award recognizes and encourages collaboration among design professionals, clients, organizations, knowledge communities, and others that have had a beneficial influence on or advanced the architectural profession. MASS Design Group is an interdisciplinary collective deeply committed to equitable, community-driven design ensuring that architecture addresses the social issues facing the world. With its mission embedded in its name—MASS is an acronym for Model of Architecture Serving Society—the company was founded on the notion that buildings hold the power to heal.
