Champions and volunteers from each of the six local AIASC Sections worked closely with Lynn Craig, FAIA, RIBA and Clemson School of Architecture faculty and students to create interactive workshops that expose children to the world of architecture and design. This prestigious award was conferred by the Public Affairs & Communications Awards Jury upon AIA South Carolina,

“For heightening public awareness that an appreciation of the power of design can begin with children. Working with architecture students in Genoa, Italy, and Children’s Museums in South Carolina, the chapter created collaborative interactive workshops that tapped into a child’s innate creativity. In so doing, AIA South Carolina innovated a unique learning approach that gave to the children of South Carolina and their parents access to the magic of design and the joy of giving shape to their dreams.”
