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 AIA Architecture Firm Award is the highest honor bestowed on an architecture practice. Hear from Architecture Research Office (ARO), the New York City firm that earned the honor in 2020. The firm’s diverse project portfolio— spanning strategic planning, architecture, and urban design—is united by a principled and engaged approach to design, a collaborative process, and technical precision.
Learn how ARO’s design process and culture fosters consistently high-quality design that elevates people and places. Explore the firm's past and present work, their process, and their firm culture in a presentation led by the firm’s leaders followed by a Q&A. Each attendee will gain inspirational insights to assist them in the evolution of their practice.Date: May 20, 2021Moderator: Douglas A.
