 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (04/11/2011)

 City of Columbia Proclaims April 10-16 “Architecture Week”

 COLUMBIA, SC – April 11, 2001 – The City of Columbia has issued a proclamation declaring April 10-April 16, 2011 as Architecture Week.  The proclamation “encourages all citizens to honor our architects and recognize the positive role they play in our continued economic prosperity.”

 The proclamation coincides with The South Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects highlighting April as “Architecture Month” throughout the state. On April 13th, coinciding with the 154th Anniversary of the American Institute of Architects, the state chapter is hosting a Legislative Breakfast in Columbia.  Meanwhile, local sections are focusing on an intense series of outreach programs throughout their communities to promote the profession in a variety of ways.  Members of the Greater Columbia section have the opportunity to participate in a number of programs including continuing education events, building tours, and networking functions.  To promote Architecture Month, the Greater Columbia section will be wrapping up a scholarship program with the Clemson University School of Architecture towards the end of the month and is hosting the annual “Kids in Architecture” program at the Columbia Museum of Art on April 30th.

 Please visit aiacolumbia.org for the official proclamation and for more information on the organization, membership opportunities, and upcoming events.  You can help to promote Architecture Week by liking AIA COLUMBIA on Facebook and following @AIAColumbia on Twitter.
