Latinos in Architecture LiA

LiA's goal is to serve and support our local communities, strengthen networks between design professionals and enrich our practices through diverse cultural views by fostering participation in educational, professional and community-oriented programs.

LiA Book Drive from September 27th - October 8th

On behalf of the Latinos in Architecture Committee (LiA) at AIA Austin, we invite you to participate in our annual Book Drive event. The Latinos in Architecture Committee is asking for donations of your new, or gently used books on architecture, engineering, art, design, and related subjects. As part of our ongoing effort for community engagement, we will be donating materials to Austin Achieve Public High School, with the mission of educating students about STEM careers and engaging the next generation of design professionals. 

Books can be dropped off from September 27th- October 8th at one of the following locations:
