I Look Up Campaign

AIA National #ilookup Campaign

 Near the end of 2014, the American Institute of Architects launched a three-year integrated campaign designed to re-connect the public with architecture and position new generations of architects as catalysts of growth and visionaries for renewal. The initiative, a first for AIA, cuts across all platforms - social media, digital marketing, broadcast and print advertising. Read More from the Press Release.

Before beginning to design, architects look up. They look up to see what isn’t there and to envision the potential for what could be. Architecture surrounds us in our daily lives. Look up and be inspired.

The The American Institute of Architects ‪#‎ilookup‬ campaign is "taking an important step towards greater public understanding of what we do, what our role is, and what our contributions are... We are raising awareness of architects and architecture... We are putting ourselves out there. View this as an opportunity to speak up." - Robert Ivy, FAIA
