This Years theme is Dream Cars! Students will work with mentor architects and designers to explore the concept of “Architecture in Motion” and the relationship between the automobile and the built environment.
The K-12 Program of AIA Atlanta hosted the 2014 Youth Architecture Fair at the High Museum of Art in Saturday September 28, 2014.
Elementary, middle, and high school students and teachers throughout the state of Georgia were invited to this event. The afternoon began with a keynote address followed by a sketching exercise and design charette exploring sustainability and art. Each student created a building model that included in a massive model of a green, urban city on display in the Hall.
Thank you to our Mentors! Mentor architects and interns provided guidance for students and addressed their questions. We received over 80 participants at last year’s Youth Architecture Fair!

Canstruction® combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help those in need. Canstruction® is a unique public relations event aimed at putting a spotlight on the design/construction industry doing something tangible to help in the fight against hunger.
Competing teams, led by architects and engineers, showcase their talents by designing giant sculptures made entirely out of canned and packaged foods. The resulting structures become an art exhibit that goes on view to the public in each city where a competition is held. At the end of the exhibitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to the city’s local food banks for distribution to on-going feeding programs.
AIA Atlanta is partnered with the Atlanta Chapter of the Society for Design Administration (SDA) for CANstruction, a unique design/build competition for the design/construction industry that puts a spotlight on the fight against hunger. You CAN do this and help those less fortunate.
