Each year, the month of October features AIA Pittsburgh’s celebration of architecture and design and those who create it. It is once again time for Design Pittsburgh, our annual design competition, exhibit, gala, and awards ceremony. We are also exhibiting your photographs in Places That Inspire, a photographic exhibition in conjunction with this year’s Young Architects Studio Competition. Looking for a way to reconnect with the architecture community? This is a great time to experience over 90 projects, meet up with other architects, and get inspired!
