Join us Today.
Their Future is in Your Hands.

If architecture is a player in our story, surely it is one of the least understood cast of characters. Architectural education is fast receding in public schools, soon to be found only in places where specialists are made, in universities. Thus, AFSB’s mission, and programs that target a variety of age groups, has become increasingly more important over time.

With the rise of virtual spaces, come join us in appreciating and learning more  about our physical community!

Membership Matters

AFSB annual memberships provide the primary funding for our youth and community education programs. You don’t have to be an architect to join.
