New AIA/Hanley Wood Integrated Media Partnership

Washington, D.C. – May 11, 2010─ 
American Institute of Architects

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) reached agreement on a five-year integrated media partnership with Hanley Wood, LLC that will increase the value of AIA membership as well as expand the reach and impact of member knowledge and expertise. The AIA / Hanley Wood agreement, unprecedented in its proposed use of digital media, integrates AIA member knowledge and thought leadership through Hanley Wood magazines, web sites, events, the AIA Annual Convention, joint research initiatives, and support for AIA chapters.

The wide-reaching agreement, effective January 1, 2011, creates an integrated media offering that encompasses print, online, the AIA convention, and digital platforms to serve the AIA in achieving its goals to meet the professional development and communication needs of its members. 

Under the new partnership agreement, AIA members will receive four Hanley Wood publications as a benefit of membership. Hanley Wood’s ARCHITECT becomes the official magazine of the AIA. It will feature exclusive coverage of all AIA programs, and initiatives, including AIA Knowledge Communities, State and Local AIA Chapter activities, and efforts that involve individual members, with an increased focus on three primary areas-design, business, and technology. The magazine will showcase design and design excellence wherever it is evident.

Members will also receive digital editions of Hanley Wood titles residential architect, EcoHome and Eco-Structure, including full access to their respective web sites. Each of these magazines will provide AIA members with the information they need to take their practice—or careers—to the next level through news, case studies, and research on essential sustainability practices and products as well as a niche focus on residential design, important to a large number of AIA members.
