Design for Decades — Submit Today!
There are only a few days left to submit to “Design for Decades.” Modeled after “MADE IN NEW YORK” (the exhibition that was on view in the West 4th Street Subway Station through 10.31.10), “Design for Decades” includes an open call for global architecture projects completed by AIA members. AIA will host a virtual exhibition, and projects may be featured in other venues in the future, including AIA headquarters, the national convention, and at local components’ spaces. According to AIA President George Miller, FAIA, “The purpose of this undertaking is to feature works of all scales and types that represent the scope and quality of work being done by AIA members.” There is a $25 entry fee, and submissions are open through Friday, 11.12.10.
