NOTICE: The Center's facilities will be unavailable for rental from
January 1 - April 15, 2016
due to renovations


We are excited to announce an expansion and renovation of the Center's public spaces to make our facilities look better than ever and allow us to accommodate bigger events. The project will include enlarging our Main Hall, adding a new dedicated exhibition gallery, addressing acoustical and A/V issues, refinishing our wood floors, and applying a fresh coat of paint. We will also be renovating our entrance at 1218 Arch Street into a welcoming reception area to provide visitors with a space to orient themselves once they enter the Center, instead of entering directly into the AIA Bookstore.
We can't wait to share our stunning new space with you when we reopen in April 2016 and look forward to collaborating with you on bigger and better programs at the city's hub for the architecture and design communities.
