George Miller, FAIA, President of the AIA, will conduct a “Town Talk,” on Friday, April 9, 2010, at the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, designed by Gunnar Birkets, in Columbus, Indiana.


At the request of George and the planners of the AIA’s National Architecture Week (11-16 April 2010), this discussion with Columbus citizens will be professionally videotaped, edited and voiced over, and shown at the closing event at the AIA National HQ in Washington DC on Saturday, April 16, 2010.


At this event … George will call for AIA chapters/architects across the USA to hold “town talks” for the remainder of 2010 as a follow up to the AIA 150 Blueprint for America project.


The talk will take the form of an informal talk w/ the audience that focuses on I.M. Pei and his impact on Columbus, IN, as well as the value of good design to a community’s quality of life.  If you would like more information, contact Tony Costello, FAIA, at
