The American Institute of Architects made a stop at the Kiwanis meeting today. Members heard from the president of the organization over lunch, on why it's beneficial to work with an architect on a project. The organization as a whole works to promote awareness of architects. “Most people in their day to day lives don’t interact with an architect so we are trying to educate the public as to what exactly we do and why it’s worth hiring an architect." Says Guillermo Cavazos The American Institute of Architects works closely with Laredo building officials, to seek innovative and sensible avenues in design and construction practices.
