It’s July, it’s hot, and you’re counting down the days (or hours) until vacation. Things may feel slower, even sluggish, on these 90° days, but the AIA is still at it, putting your dues dollars to work! While the calendar may not look very full, AIA Pittsburgh is working full-throttle as Design Pittsburgh approaches. Have a project you’re particularly proud of? A great design you want to show off to other professionals? A contender for an Honor Award? Submit it to our annual Design Awards Competition! In the meantime, here is a breakdown of events and opportunities happening this month at the AIA.
