​​Welcome to AIA Idaho !

The University of Idaho Architecture program is in need of architecture books that can fire-up the imaginations of high school, pre-engineering and art students across the state.  For the past 4 years we have been actively recruiting from these classes and networking with teachers.  We would like to provide these teachers books and magazines that can stimulate their student’s interest in architecture. If you or your firm can spare 3 or 4 books and magazines (Architecture Record is best) to the University of Idaho Architecture Program, we will make sure to distribute them to Idaho’s high school pre-engineering and art teachers classrooms. We request that you DO NOT provide old Sweets Catalogs, Building Product or Building Trade Magazines, etc… Gladly accepted are Notable Architects books, History books, Green Architecture books, your Firm’s Portfolios, Building Type books, (ie…Northwest Homes) Architecture Record,  Dwell, or any print media that can fire-up the imaginations of high school students. 
You are welcome to drop-off  books at the University of Idaho Integrated Design Lab (IDL) in Boise, 306 S. 6th Street (located off Front Street across from PF Changs and Trader Joes). At this time, we are unable to provide you a receipt.
