Committee on Architecture for Education

Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) develops a knowledge sharing network of individuals that impact planning and design of early learning, K-12, higher education, and other learning environments and shares innovative ideas, trends and best practices in education through local events, programs and tours that strengthen relationships between architects, allied organizations, client groups and the public at large.

The Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) is a national AIA committee of architects and allied professionals engaged in understanding the link between teaching, learning and the built environment.  Through Seattle AIA, this local committee was formed in 2016 with the goal to have a hometown CAE presence – and a place to share things architects and allied professionals learn from their own work and places all around the world.
