The American Institute of Architects Committment to Sustainable Communities

For almost 150 years, members of The American Institute of Architects have worked with each other and their communities to create more valuable, healthy, secure, and sustainable buildings and cityscapes. AIA members have access to the right people, knowledge, and tools to create better design, and through such resources and access, they help clients and communities make their visions real. AIA has developed 10 Principles for Livable Communities. To download this document, click here.
