Programs and Initiatives

The AIA is the leader in creating a culture of quality for the architecture profession.

    AIA Strategic Plan—In line with its goals, the AIA Strategic Plan guides the AIA in its three key strategic initiatives: sustainability, integrated project delivery, and diversity.

    Walk the Walk—Join the AIA on a journey toward a more sustainable future. The AIA is committed to its goal of reaching at least a 50-percent carbon emission reduction by 2010 and carbon-neutral buildings by 2030.

    America’s Favorite Architecture—The result of a poll conducted by the AIA and Harris Interactive, America’s Favorite Architecture features 150 works of architecture—buildings, bridges, monuments, and memorials—that represent some of the best of America’s architectural heritage.

    Shape of America—In its companion initiative, America’s Favorite Architecture, Americans from coast to coast engaged in a conversation about their favorite 150 works of architecture. The AIA is continuing the national dialogue through a stimulating series of videos, in which AIA architects share their personal stories, opinions, and insights about these works of architecture.

    • Resource Pages—AIA resource pages offer a wealth of tools, tips, and information on practical topical areas for the practicing AIA architect: sustainability, small firms, and practice management.

    Diversity—The AIA recognizes that diversity can add a special richness to the architecture profession and is committed to mirroring the society we serve.

    Integrated Practice/Integrated Project Delivery—The AIA remains at the forefront of the integrated project delivery approach that integrates people, systems, business structures, and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to reduce waste and optimize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction.

    Blueprint for America—Intended to inspire communities to come together around architecture, Blueprint provides the opportunity for individuals to collaborate with AIA architects and share their ideas for creating livable communities.

    Center for Communities by Design—The Center for Communities by Design is a catalyst, convener, and source of information that helps AIA members work with citizens and other stakeholders to envision and create more livable communities.

    2030 Commitment—A commitment to reduce energy consumption in the built environment by the year 2030 requires a leadership role among all architects, and the AIA is leading the way.
