Public voting has opened for AIA's 2018 Better Film Challenge, an initiative that highlights the collaborative work of architects and civic leaders to solve some of the biggest issues facing cities today.
The issues communities face, such as homelessness, access to healthy food and natural disaster preparedness are widely left unsolved and are under recognized, leaving citizens to suffer from the effects. The films shine a light on design solutions to many of these problems, creating a greater awareness and appreciation architects provide communities.
Fans can view and vote for the films that inspire them the most once every hour on the AIA Film Challenge website. The winning film will be celebrated with a screening at Chicago Ideas Festival on October 18, drawing a national spotlight to the problems cities are currently facing.
