Support AIA San Fransisco’s vision for the future of the AIA

So you read through AIA San Fransisco’s bold vision, then listened to some 99% Invisible, and THEN supported the Radiotopia Kickstarter campaign. But you want to do more. Well after posting that last article, I had some brief communication with AIA San Fransisco. They have a Change.org petition to garner support for their revisioning of the AIA. I signed up. How about you? Would you be proud to be an active member of The American Institute of Architecture and Design? I sure would be.

AIA San Fransisco has a webpage that describes a bit more in detail what they want to see happen, and what their envisioned timeline would be. Please read through it here. Their scope of change is big. Their ideas are radical. Their proposals would result in disruption. But I’m a firm believer that it needs to happen. Read More>
