Seven steps for a better AIA with Warwick Mihaly
America’s top 10 houses for 2014: how do they stack up?

The Australian Institute of Architects has launched a new nationwide competition that aims to promote the value of architecture within the community.

Part of a national public awareness campaign, the social media-based competition invites members of the public to post an image of where they’d like to live at the hashtag #whereidliketolive and explain why they love their favourite house.

Post entries by 16 November for a chance to win a design delights package including a $1000 voucher from Cult, appliances from Smeg, goodies from Aesop, design books from Architext and a subscription to Houses. 

‘Where I’d Like to’ is an online awareness campaign challenging the misconceptions of architecture as elitist, expensive and intangible.The first phase features residential designs with Where I’d Like to Live; public and commercial architecture will be covered in subsequent phases.

The website, is the main hub for the ongoing campaign featuring project inspiration, profiles and information on working with an architect.
