WHAT IS FREEDOM BY DESIGN ™

Freedom by Design™, the AIAS community service program in partnership with the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), uses the talents of architecture students to radically impact the lives of people in their community through modest design and construction solutions. The program embraces efforts to provide both design-build and engagement solutions to address 5 barriers:

  • Physical
  • Educational
  • Environmental
  • Socio-Economic
  • Cultural

Freedom by Design™ (FBD) encourages students to serve their communities by addressing issues with design solutions. FBD provides real-world experience through working with clients, learning from local licensed architects and contractors, and experiencing the practical impacts of architecture and design.

All AIAS Chapters are encouraged to establish a Freedom by Design program at their university. Please see how you can get involved below.
