why we are here

Realize a vision of the Center for Architecture as the nexus for discovery and discussion about the power of design to influence the quality of human lives.

 

what we do

Catalyze collaborative exploration and discourse among the community, its leaders, teachers, and professionals about the challenges and opportunities the future promises  today.

Create and maintain a sustainable plan of action by which the Center for Architecture can reach its full potential in this endeavor.

  1. Identify important quality of life issues concerning how we are affected by design of the places and things that surround us.
  2. Identify and engage stakeholders who perceive the importance of public engagement on these questions.
  3. Facilitate visible and stimulating events of broad public interest that provide the highest levels of demonstration, discovery, and discourse among the participants.
  4.  Provide facilities and raise monetary and other resources to support the events and to promote community engagement with the Center for Architecture.
  5. Document, measure, evaluate, and archive the progress and the results of Center for Architecture projects and events.
