AIA Seeking Work from Emerging Professionals

Submit your design work to be exhibited at AIA National in Washington, DC! The AIA announces the Third Annual Emerging Professionals Exhibition. The American Institute of Architects, Center for Emerging Professionals sponsors an annual exhibition of architectural work, art, and designs of emerging architectural professionals across North America. This annual exhibition promotes the compelling work of the rising generation of architects and designers and inspires professionals to continue to mentor and engage the many talented and motivated emerging professionals across the country.

The annual exhibition is presented at AIA National's headquarters, the American Center for Architecture, in Washington, DC. The exhibition is on display from February through the annual AIA Grassroots Leadership and Legislative Conference. The Center for Emerging Professionals Annual Exhibition is an opportunity for emerging professionals to receive extensive exposure to their work. Selected works will be viewed by a large number of AIA National leadership and staff while on display at AIA National's headquarters.

In order to best represent the diversity and talents of emerging professionals, the AIA accepts submissions of varying media. Submissions can be the result of work in a firm, class, design studio, design competition, or personal investigation. Submission types include, but are not limited to; final presentation content, developmental design sketches, renderings, complete drawing sets, models, photography, painting, and video. The AIA encourages the creative use of the exhibition space and the use of alternative and mixed media.

Submissions are accepted from any architecture student, intern architect, or architect licensed less than ten years, per the AIA's definition of emerging professionals. Submissions from AIA and AIAS members receive priority for display, but an effort to include as much work as possible is made to create an exhibit that is inclusive of all emerging professionals within the fields of architecture and design.
