AIA Launches Film Challenge

WASHINGTON – June 18, 2018 – The AIA has launched its fourth annual film challenge as part of the AIA’s “Blueprint for Better” campaign, an initiative that highlights the collaborative work of architects and civic leaders to solve some of the biggest issues facing cities today.

AIA is launching its film challenge along with the premiere of its new film, “Caño Martin Peña: A Blueprint for Better,” which depicts the rebuilding efforts of an architect and community leader in Puerto Rico following last year’s devastating Hurricane Maria that left more than three million people without power. AIA will debut the film at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2018 this Thursday.

Similar to AIA’s film, participants in the film challenge should produce, shoot and edit a three to five-minute documentary to tell a story about architects working with civic and community leaders to make a positive impact on their cities and towns.  Submissions for the film challenge—due by 11:59 p.m. PDT on Monday, Aug. 27.

Complete details are available on AIA’s Film Challenge website. Films from previous film challenge finalists can be watched online.  

AIA Honolulu Program Updates

Pictures from June GMM and YAF Pau Hana

Last week we had two great events organized by AIA Honolulu committees.

On June 14 our General Membership Meeting "What Makes Good Design Part 2: Emerging Professionals" took place at the Center for Architecture. This time we had the great honor to listen to Andrew Tang; Deirdre Stearns, AIA and Bundit Kanisthakhon as they discussed about “What makes good design, great architecture” View images.

Our second event was a Pau Hana organized by our Young Architects Forum (YAF) at Smith & Kings. This was a fun get-together and networking opportunity for their peers. This is a fantastic way to build new relationships with colleagues from the up and coming generation of leaders in Hawaii’s design and construction industry! View image.
