Welcome to AIA Cities

The AIA Cities project enhances the architectural profession's connection to the public through a series of short audio recordings. Listeners are able to get an “inside look” from the architect’s perspective of the built environment around them through a series of audio tours that highlight iconic structures in Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington, D.C. Take advantage of this immersive experience using Field Trip, a groundbreaking location-aware mobile app from Niantic Labs at Google, or by listening to the recordings on this website.
AIA Cities: Voice of the Architect has been nominated for a Webby Award. Vote For Us!
