Committee on Architecture for Education Meeting - CANCELED
April 9

This event has been canceled and will be rescheduled at a later date.

Join our new committee – the Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) – for their first meeting.

Based on the national Knowledge Community, CAE is concerned with the quality and design of all types of educational, cultural, and recreational facilities. The CAE will plan events, hold monthly meetings, create a connection with the national CAE and other local CAE committees, promotes relationship building between designers, local school districts, and government officials on pressing school issues, and encourage and celebrate design excellence.

For questions about the upcoming meeting or the CAE in general, please contact co-chairs Meredith Ellinger, AIA and Jenine Kotob, Assoc. AIA at

The CAE is a forum for architects, educators, and civic leaders that promotes the exchange of ideas, best practices, and resources around learning environment design. Through this platform, we hope to enhance knowledge around architecture, pedagogy, culture, wellbeing, and safety in our schools. Additionally, the new committee will strive to cultivate greater connections between school design and local neighborhoods across Northern Virginia and beyond.
