Sep 1, 2016 -- The American Institute of Architects (AIA) invited filmmakers and architects to team-up to create a short film showing architecture as a solution. With more than double the number of films submitted in 2015, the public is encouraged to select their favorite film as part of the People’s Choice Award.
