    ArchEx 2021 Registration Open

    Registration is now open for Architecture Exchange East 2021.

    ArchEx is AIA Virginia’s annual conference. This year, it takes place (mostly) virtually from Nov. 1–5, 2021. The program is curated to bring together the brightest minds and most engaging speakers to explore a broad theme.

    In 2021, we’ll consider consequences — both intentional and unintentional. Design sometimes follows unexpected paths. Like cracks in the sidewalk, the built environment blooms in surprising ways with unexpected actors, leading us to new horizons. This year’s program features designs and designers responding with innovation, synthesis, and perhaps even a lesson or two from the undesigned constraints around us.

    Visions Raises Scholarship Funds for Hampton U

    In the past, Visions for Architecture, our annual celebration recognizing AIA Virginia’s Honors and Design Award winners has served as a fundraiser to support a wide range of architectural education.

    Like last year, in 2021 we’re using Visions to raise funds to support scholarships. Our friends at Hampton University need our direct support and we’re asking you to join the cause.

    In addition to recognizing our honorees, Visions will serve as a mini telethon to raise money to support Hampton University’s department of architecture Scholarship Fund. Hampton has a 5-year Master of Architecture program. Students in their final year of the program lose access to the traditional undergraduate financial aid such as Pell Grants. This fund directly helps these students when many funding streams are no longer available to them.

    Support Virginia’s only HBCU with an accredited architecture program by making a charitable contribution today.

    Your gift will directly, and meaningfully, contribute to diversity in the profession. Please give today.
