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.

Under the mentorship of members of the CAE leadership group, Kelly Martinez, Assoc. AIA conducted post occupancy research on several geographically diverse education projects. Four research case studies were selected by Kelly from among the last three years of National AIA | CAE design awards projects. The projects were evaluated based on stated project goals, the success of those goals and the impact of the project on teaching and learning. #Edcuation #DesignAwards #CAE #Research #CommitteeonArchitectureforEducation #scholarship #casestudy
