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.
Across America and overseas, reactions to traditional monuments are changing the way we think about their message as well as their place in the public spaces in our communities. This session seeks to contextualize the role of monuments in our current societal condition and presents four architect-envisioned monuments that highlight the underrepresented histories of African American citizens.
