I Look Up Film Challenge 2017


The American Institute of Architect’s third annual I Look Up Film Challenge invites architects and filmmakers to collaborate in bringing architectural stories to life. This year’s challenge calls for films that highlight projects and architects that are helping to change communities for the better.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) encourages everyone to "Look Up” and see what we can create together. Then, imagine what America could look like when you partner with an architect to co-create its future.
