The American Institute of Architects is pleased to present the first of a series of collaborative exhibitions that will foster interdisciplinary education and appreciation within the fields of architecture, art, and design. As we move toward AIA 2012 National Convention and Design Exposition: Design Connects, these features will initiate the conversation of our presence as individuals in a much larger collective world where design has the opportunity to thrive.

The Institute asks that you assist in our efforts to consider the New York Avenue home of the Institute as the “American Center for Architecture” by inviting your fellow architects, artists, photographers, designers, and musicians to visit this continuing exhibition in the coming months…and hopefully coming years!

In the spring of 2011, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design presented NEXT at the Corcoran: BFA Class of 2011an exhibition featuring thesis work of senior students in the college’s Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program. For more than 120 years, the Corcoran has educated and trained students – the next generation of America's artists – while displaying the most important works of the time.

Featured here are four selected works from the NEXT Exhibition that reflect the artistic and architectural connections within the design world. These works have been adjusted to accommodate the AIA National Features… exhibition and may not appear in their entirety. For more information on the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Corcoran College of Art + Design, the artists, and how and when you can attend an exhibition—like NEXT—at the Corcoran, please visit
