The South Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIASC) and its section champions, and Clemson Architecture students and faculty, have received a 2014 national AIA Component Excellence Award, in the "Public Affairs & Communications: Outstanding Overall Program" category, for "Kids in Architecture Workshops". This collaborative project celebrated the coincident centennials of AIASC and Clemson Architecture. The award will be presented March 21st in Washington, DC. Congratulations to all of you who were involved, from Genoa to Charleston to Clemson! This is a wonderful example of creative, collaborative transformational leadership, and definitely "southern roots + global reach".
