Advancing the Profession Through Project Pipeline

NOMAPGH Leads Workshops for Students

By Maya Henry, COLUMNS Editor Posted on February 7, 2019

Project Pipeline Summer Camp 2018.  All photos by Riccardy Volcy Providing students with exposure to architecture at a young age gives each child an opportunity to discover their artistic and technical passions early in their educational development. Students, parents, teachers, and counselors can then place students in classes that will build on the student’s interest in architecture and design.

Why Being an Architect Makes Me a Better Etsy Painter

Inspiration From the Profession

By Timothy Reidy, AIA Posted on January 30, 2019

As a teenager, I used to decompress from school and football practice every night by sketching, coloring, and painting. ...

Architects Leading in their Communities

How to Improve Your 2019 Resolutions List

By Eric Fisher, AIA and Bea Spolidoro, AIA Posted on January 8, 2019

As architects making resolution lists for the new year, one item you might add to your list, if you haven’t already, is to become a leader in your community. It’s possible you believe your designs make you a leader. They speak for themselves after all. And we know you are busy. It takes so long, you may think, to do your paid job that you simply don’t have time to do other professional work. Your families call. Your local night spot beckons. However, leadership work can be spiritually rewarding, as we discovered attending a recent day-long leadership seminar. Held on November 9, 2018, and organized by the AIA National Center For Civic Leadership (CCL) the seminar contained a full day of...
