The American Institute of Architects Headquarters to Become the Global Campus for Architecture and Design

WASHINGTON – May 6, 2024 – The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is proud to announce the reimagining of the organization’s headquarters as the AIA Global Campus for Architecture & Design, serving as a new home base for the world’s architects and designers. 

“In 2025, the renewed AIA headquarters will reopen as an international hub for design innovation and excellence,” said AIA EVP/Chief Executive Officer Lakisha Ann Woods, CAE. “The AIA Global Campus for Architecture & Design will be a destination for AIA members, students and allied peers from around the world to convene for collaboration and learning, and a place where the public can be inspired by the power of design.” 

The campus renewal follows AIA’s Framework for Design Excellence, which seeks to inform progress toward a zero-carbon, equitable, resilient, and healthy built environment. The design electrifies all building systems, while incorporating on and offsite renewable energy to fully decarbonize the campus. A suite of amenities—including drop-in coworking space, meeting facilities, and VR/media lounges—will be available to members and staff alike in this new model for an energy-efficient, adaptable, post-COVID, workplace and gathering space. 
While construction continues, AIA will share updates with relevant information, including a timeline on project completion. AIA unveiled schematic design plansâ�¯in 2022 to fully renovate its national headquarters to be a model of sustainability, equity, and collaboration.
