Immediate Action Needed Contact the White House NOW!
The BSA and AIA National oppose a mandated style for federal architecture. All architectural style has value. We encourage you to take action against any top-down directive which would eliminate a community's rights to weigh in on the government buildings meant to serve them.

On Twitter, February 4, the AIA issued this statement
“The AIA strongly opposes uniform style mandates for federal architecture. Architecture should be designed for the specific communities that it serves, reflecting our rich nation’s diverse places, thought, culture and climates. Architects are committed to honoring our past as well as reflecting our future progress, protecting the freedom of thought and expression that are essential to democracy.”
