Designing a new future

The Architects Foundation celebrates architecture’s value by advancing tomorrow’s design leaders and preserving architectural treasures of the past.

We’re positioning for new success, and launching a momentous increase in our scholarship program. By enhancing the program, we aim to attract and cultivate a diverse next generation of architects, and provide new opportunities to support the evolution of our profession.

The Architects Foundation also preserves the historic Octagon building in the nation’s capital, seeking ways to best express the values of historic preservation work and keep the Octagon’s legacy alive with exhibits, educational programs, and partnerships.
