Jane Frederick, FAIA, op-ed

As our profession’s leading voice in the United States, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) is focused on advancing architects as an indispensable resource in the climate crisis fight, and a trusted ally on issues of racial injustice – while pursuing solutions at the real-world intersection of these two critical priorities. Both issues demonstrate how architects can make a difference one structure at a time.

Policy Platform 2020

American architecture stands as a testament to our unique place in the world. Our architects work at the leading edge of a $1T construction industry that promotes commerce and drives consumer confidence. Architects have always dared to reach higher and set new standards. Our next architectural achievements will be measured by how well they respond to a post-pandemic world, eradicate inequity, fuel economic recovery, eliminate carbon emissions, and nurture individual and community health.
