Architecture in Education (AIE) Program

Architecture in Education ­is a STE[A]M focused, Florida-standards based, educational program by the Florida Foundation for Architecture. Architecture in Education (AIE) is a dynamic, eight- to 10-week, curriculum-enrichment program that matches professional architects with classroom teachers. AIE sharpens a student’s math, social studies, art and other core academics with real-life, project-based learning. The Anstis Fund is available to provide financial assistance for components that would like to incorporate AIE in their local schools.­

Crawford Tracey Corporation generously sponsored an annual raffle to benefit the AIE program. In 2023, the raffle raised $3,680.

Open Door Program

The Foundation Open Door Program is a state-wide initiative that invites members of the public into well-known public buildings for behind-the-scenes tours. ­Each year, buildings that are part of the AIA Florida People's Choice Competition are opened to the public to provide Florida residents and visitors alike a chance to see the building from a different perspective. More information on other Foundation events are provided here. ­­

One of the top ten winners, The Jim Moran Building, held an Open-Door event in October 2019.
