The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the AIA Office of Diversity and Inclusion have selected the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts’ Alberti Program: Architecture for Young People as the 2016 honoree of the AIA Diversity Recognition Program.

Launched in 2006, the Alberti Program is an educational outreach initiative that provides an avenue for St. Louis students ages 8-15 to explore architecture and design. The tuition-free program operates year-round: during the summer as a day camp and during the academic year as a Saturday afternoon program. The program is run by Sam Fox School faculty and students, with generous support from PGAV Destinations, the Mellon Foundation and AIA St. Louis.

The AIA Diversity Recognition Program celebrates architects, AIA chapters, educational institutions and organizations that are actively committed to increasing diversity and inclusion within the architecture profession. The Alberti Program will be featured at the 2016 AIA National Convention in Philadelphia and during the Multicultural Fellows and Diversity Recognition reception May 21.
