Map of Architecture in the U.S.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, research in Architecture and Design has changed the American landscape. The construction of skyscrapers and the creation of major architectural works such as the Dumbarton Oaks, Fallingwater, the Gamble House, the Gropius House, and many more made the United States an important place for the development of architecture. Today, museums like the Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Chicago Athenaeum, and the A+D Museum represent this heritage and make room for new architectural creations that take into account current challenges such as sustainable development and the inclusion of accessible public space. Research in architecture goes hand in hand with research in design, as both question the diversity of materials, the shape of objects, and the use of new technologies. There are many events in the United States that celebrate new developments in both fields, from the Atlanta Design Festival to Modesto Architecture and Design Week (MADWEEK) and WantedDesign!

That is why, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States developed a professional map identifying the main elements related to architecture in the U.S. This non-exhaustive collection of resources are meant to help French professionals developing their projects abroad and will be regularly updated.

In the context of a global pandemic, all these infrastructures have been hit particularly hard and most are trying to adapt to the circumstances by offering an online format.

This map features the following categories:
- Organizations & Programming Institutions;
- Higher Education;
- American Professional Networks;
- Major Events & Prizes.
When you click on the different categories, you can find the list of information in excel version.
