Since opening the Center for Architecture and Design, we’ve grown from hosting approximately 30 events each year, to nearly 200 events per year, including continuing education seminars, private receptions, monthly meetings and even Mardi Gras parade parties.

We like to refer it as a Center for Learning for our community of architects, building professionals, and the public. In coordination with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) New Orleans Chapter, we offer a variety of continuing education opportunities, design seminars, and public lectures and forums throughout the year. 

Flexibility of the space allows our allied organizations and partners to use the space, providing higher visibility for design and architecture, and establishing our space as the premier location to learn about architecture and design. NOAF and AIA New Orleans are proud to have a permanent home and a visible presence in the heart of New Orleans.
