Freedom by Design is an American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS)-led program that utilizes the talents of architecture students for service to their communities by helping individuals with physical, mental and/or financial challenges. All FBD projects should allow individuals to live:

  • in a safe environment void of physical or implied barriers
  • with a sense of Dignity becoming any individual of the community
  • with the same Comfort that you and I experience on a day-to-day basis.

FBD empowers students to become owners in a process that radically impacts the lives of people in their communities through design and construction solutions.
