Welcome to the AIA Pennsylvania Strategic Council Design Workshop

The Design For Better Workshop is "the initiative driven think tank" of the AIA Pennsylvania Strategic Council,

purposefully created to respond to the rapidly evolving needs of our membership and also the needs of many of the communities they serve.  

You are visiting the AIA PA Strategic Council website because you were invited to contribute to one or more our Active Challenges below.

Thank you for your participation. Offer as much research or as many ideas as you like but, submit each different thought, research bit or idea as a separate entry in a separate entry box. This will make it easier for our team to organize entries by theme and identify trending themes that will be more useful to you in the next stages of the process. As always, fewer words are always better and accompanying, pictures, diagrams, and sketches are welcome.

Thanks again! Just click on an active "CONTRIBUTE" button below and let the Challenge begin!

“The urge for good design is the same as the urge to go on living. The assumption is that somewhere, hidden, is a better way of doing things,”
