American Architectural Foundation
The American Architectural Foundation (AAF) was founded in 1943 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. The AAF is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to cultivating the public’s understanding of architecture and the human experience. The AAF initiates education and outreach efforts, which foster public participation in the design process, encourage public stewardship of America’s architectural heritage, and promotes alliances between architects and the communities in which they live and practice. Each year AAF is on the ground in more than 75 cities across the country, helping local leaders use design as a catalyst for innovation and action.
