Task Force Report
AIA Columbus Center for Architecture
October 09, 2008
In July, 2008, AIA Columbus organized a Task Force to study the idea of an AIA Columbus Center for Architecture (CFA). The Task for met several times over the summer, completing its work in September.
Centers for Architecture have recently opened in Philadelphia, Portland, Austin, and Houston; others are about to open in North Carolina and Dallas, and others have existed for many years in Chicago, Seattle and New York. While size, cost, and program vary in detail, they all have in common the goal of creating a home for architecture in their city, of creating an exciting place for both members and the public, a place for exhibits, receptions, chapter meetings, and community outreach, as well as creating a home for the chapter’s day to day business.
