Celebrating National Architecture Week

Architecture // Apr 09, 2013

8 HouseThe beginning of this week marked the American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Architecture Week – a week devoted to taking a moment to “showcase the talented architects who’ve made positive contributions to our communities and society in general.” Throughout the nation, AIA is engaging cities and communities to explore both old and new architectural treasures through local AIA Chapter events. For those of us who may have a busy workweek, AIA has made it easy for us to enjoy the celebration at our computers by regularly updating their Pinterest page and other social media outlets with beautiful imagery of structures throughout the world.

If you still need an incentive to engage in National Architecture Week, the AIA is hosting a contest on Instagram and Twitter called the Architecture is Awesome Sweepstakes.

In an effort to pass along the word on this week-long celebration of all things architecture, tell us about what buildings inspire you.
