Last year’s new exhibit format allowed us to show the annual AIA exhibition in various places including at the Design Awards Celebration. This year we plan to follow the same format and hope that this year’s submission process will be even smoother. Once again, the exhibition is now open to ALL of our member firms (architecture and allied) allowing them the opportunity to show their work to an audience focused on design.AIA Philadelphia is anchoring the exhibits and installations at Cherry Street Pier during the 2019 DesignPhiladelphia Festival with two separate exhibitions, one that celebrates the legacy of AIA Philadelphia in the city of Philadelphia over the last 150 years and one that celebrates the member firm work that makes us one of the largest and oldest chapters in the AIA.
