Book Donation Program

AIA Triangle has placed an Architectural book in all elementary, middle and high schools in our ten-county region. Our hope is that these books inspire young people to explore design in our area and beyond.

If you are an educator and are interested in receiving an age appropriate architectural book, please email info@aiatriangle.org or call 919-463-0333.


Architects in the Classroom

The American Institute of Architects believes that the art and science of architecture, when integrated into K-12 core curricula and community college course offerings, enhances the students’ understanding of the built environment, encourages them to think creatively and critically about livable communities and appreciate the impact on the quality of life. If you are interested in scheduling an architect to visit your classroom, please call (919) 463-0333 or email info@aiatriangle.org

 

For examples of lessons provided to classrooms, please view the following pdf's. These lessons were developed by Sabrina L. Tucker, AIA and Mark A. Humienny, AIA.
