It gives me great pleasure to announce that, through the hard work of our new Executive Director, Anne Laird-Blanton, AIA and the staff of AIACC we have just launched a new and much improved website for the California Architectural Foundation/CAF. The site also has a new address that we hope will be easier to find: www.cafsite.org. Check us out!
We are very excited about this new site for CAF because we firmly believe that an effective, user-friendly website is the best way for us to communicate the mission, goals and initiatives of the Foundation. The website will be updated on a regular basis and will be where we tell the story of our award winners and scholarship recipients, announce new programs and share information important to building sustainable communities. The site will also emphasize CAF’s role as a bridge between the profession and schools of architecture in California, providing information to practicing architects about programs and initiatives within academia that are of direct relevance to the future of the profession.
For its inaugural edition, the CAF website features:
An article on the Drylands Conference, which culminates a two-year collaboration between CAF and the Arid Lands Institute of Woodbury University. Click here to read more
Information on the winners of the Turnbull Ideas Competition that drew international submissions from professional and student teams. Click here to read more
A call for entries for the Nathaniel A. Owings Award, a new program that seeks to recognize environmental excellence with a focus on how the “human footprint” leaves its mark on the natural environment. Click here to read more
I hope that you will visit the CAF website often, that it will make each of you more aware of the important work that the Foundation is undertaking on your behalf, and that you will support CAF through your individual or firm donations.
