Chapter News

FIRST AIAS/PV CANstruction TEAM A SUCCESS

CANstruction 2018

CANstruction 2018 marked the first time that our Chapter participated in AIA|DC’s annual anti-hunger fundraising event at the National Building Museum. And, unlike other teams made up of staff from individual firms, we did so by creating a collaboration between several small and sole-practice architects (many recruited from the Small Practice Group) and the University of Maryland AIAS CANstruction team.

“We were really proud of the way the students chose to support the AIA position on climate change through their ‘Beat the Heat’ design,” said one member of the architect team, Luella Mast, AIA

For another member, Doug Williams, AIA, it was “a very eye-opening experience with many lessons learned from fundraising, actual construction methods, and how to prepare for the big day.” 

The team donated 2,760 cans of food to the Capital Area Food Bank, thanks to the following contributors:

Mark Allen - Mitsubishi Electric
Ryan Askey
Carl Bovill
Michael Brick - University of Maryland
Wayne W Broadfield
Joshua Bundy - LENNAR
