Every September, the Seattle Design Festival brings together designers, community members, experts, and city officials to celebrate and explore how design improves the quality of our lives and our community. Since 2011, the Seattle Design Festival has been presented by Design in Public and AIA Seattle in collaboration with dozens of partner organizations.

More information about the festival can be found on the Design in Public website

The AIA Seattle Board of Directors and Staff would like to recognize and appreciate the enormous contributions these individuals have given in their roles on our Board of Directors, Steering Committee members or as Committee Chairs.
It is through these passionate members that we have successfully engaged our community of architects and other design related professionals in meaningful conversations about the value of design and the profession.  You leave a great legacy for us to continue.

AIA Seattle’s Code Committee wants to help you learn and understand the updates to the Washington State Energy Code, International Building Code, and the Seattle Building Code. Join us for the last two sessions of the Code Evolutions series, October 6 & December 1.

The AIA Disaster Assistance Program connects professional engineers, architects and certified building inspectors with local governments to assist with post-disaster building evaluations. The training program will issue Disaster Service Worker (DSW) ID cards to all professionally licensed volunteers who have completed the training. Those who are not yet licensed will receive a certificate and may contact CalOES upon licensure to receive the DSW ID card.
