AIA Film Challenge: A Blueprint for Better

AIA Film Challenge: A Blueprint for Better

The 2018 AIA Film Challenge invited architects and filmmakers to collaborate in telling stories of architects, civic leaders, and their communities working together toward positive community impact, creating a Blueprint for Better.

Participants produced, shot, and edited 3 to 5 minute documentary-style short films showcasing their Blueprint for Better story to win cash and experiential prizes, distribution at film festivals, and exposure on AIA’s online channels, as well as partner film and architecture organizations.

A panel of judges made up of architects and film/media professionals will select the Grand Prize Winner, the Runner Up, and the Third Place Winner based on the films’ adherence to the prompt, storytelling arc, architectural placement, and technical merit.

Legislative Action Alert

The Ohio House of Representatives will be convening a lame duck session this Wednesday, November 14th and supporters of the Certified Interior Design Bill (HB 504) are pushing hard for the bill to come to the House floor for a vote.  Now is the time to make your voice heard!

The current version of the bill completely fails to address the concerns of AIA Ohio architects.

HB 504 would:

  • require local building departments to accept submittals from certified interior designers without an architect's seal.

  • create the Ohio Interior Design Examiners Board and allow it to define the practice of interior design without the oversight or approval of the Ohio Architects Board.

In its current form, HB 504 raises significant concerns for health, safety, and welfare of the public.

During the Ohio House of Representatives lame duck session, they passed the Certified Interior Design Bill (HB 504). The current version of the bill completely fails to address the concerns of AIA Ohio architects.

2012 AIA National Convention

In May, representatives from AIA Columbus traveled to Washington DC to attend the AIA National Convention. Our Executive Director, Gwen Berlekamp, who sits on the CACE Executive Committee was even asked to attend a White House briefing with representatives from the current administration address issues facing architects and the building industry as a whole. Besides having the opportunity to advocate for architects at the national level, several Bylaws ammendments were voted upon, as well as some newly elected officers.
