NEW - A message from the ACSA:
The ACSA has las launched an exciting new initiative: #IMADETHAT. Our member schools are doing important work and we want the world to see it. #IMADETHAT is phase one of our campaign to show the impact of studying architecture and to showcase the talent of students, alumni, and faculty. #IMADETHAT will be the basis for building awareness for prospective students, parents, and others, and ultimately for connecting them back to our member schools' websites and admissions information.

The concept is simple, but the impact is powerful:
We are encouraging students and faculty ti use the hashtags #IMADETHAT and share an image of what they are making in architecture school via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or Vine. It can be anything from an early ideas sketch to a final thesis project. Trag it, and we will feature it on These visuals will also become part of the second phase of the communication campaign this fall.
