The Benefits of Membership
AIA is where the architecture and design communities come together to share knowledge, gain expertise, get connected, and stay involved. An AIA membership connects you to this global community of over 90,000 professionals who share your passion for architecture, design, and the built environment. It also connects you to opportunities to mold the architecture profession, public policy, and practice.
Please remember to take Equity by Design’s third Equity in Architecture Survey before it closes Friday, March 16! Developed by AIA San Francisco, the survey aims to explore career equity experiences among architecture school graduates.
The survey should take between 20-25 minutes to complete. If you’ve already received an invitation from another organization, please take the survey only once. Also, do not forward this survey link to others to preserve the integrity of the survey.

For questions about the survey, please contact our research partner, Kendall Nicholson at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your participation!
Light and Color with LEDs
1 HSW – 1 hour
Our eyes can play tricks on us when it comes to color and how the eyes adapt. Lighting designs are affected, positively and negatively, by this. Understanding basic vision science, and how the eye perceives colors of objects and the environment, are important elements in design considerations. Comprehending color metrics that are used with conventional and LED sources will allow for a more thoughtful technical and artistic approach to the design.
Registration will close with 20 registrants or
Noon, March 23rd, whichever comes first.

Observe the advantages of above ceiling rack prefabrication for building systems. They will participate in detailed design techniques using BIM technology to fully understand above ceiling coordination prior to starting onsite.
- This course will cover how exterior envelopes in building construction can be fast-tracked using prefabricated wall panels. Participants will evaluate wall components to determine what was achievable for construction while maintaining the design intent.
This course will cover construction Takt Sequencing utilizing a Last Planner System (LPS) to produce predictable workflow and rapid learning during design and construction.
