Resources from the AIA’s Design Assistance Team (DAT) Programs

For the first time, all of the existing reports from the 1960s to present are available as a vast data source on the AIA’s volunteer program that assists communities in their planning. Originally called the UDAT program, the AIA established the R/UDAT program in 1967. In addition to the national level program, components have adopted this model. The SDAT program was added in 2005. Communities looking to see how similar issues and challenges have been addressed will find these reports of interest. Some reports have been revisited and readers can compare initial planning and subsequent efforts.
