The AFBC is creating an architectural and design legacy for the people of British Columbia.

Design impacts us all.

Since 2001, AFBC has created programs and funded initiatives to connect BC Communities with all things design. The foundation was formed by a group of BC architects who saw the need to better educate the general public on architecture and design, and to support the design community through the provision of grants, scholastic awards and events.

Our goal is to make architecture and design accessible to all stakeholders by promoting awareness through a variety of programs and annual events.

To receive AFBC news and notifications about our events:

AFBC is currently undergoing a transformation into becoming an education based resource for British Columbia.

Our first initiative scheduled for launching in 2018 will introduce architecture to school kids in BC by building a curriculum for kindergarten and primary school educators to use in and out of classroom environments. We recognize the importance of exposing design to everyone, and helping our kids better understand the built environment is one of our continuing education program goals.

Our growth is dependent on the ongoing support of our foundation friends and sponsors, and we salute all who are passionate about architecture and design. The foundation is also in the process of expanding the board of directors to help enhance our program offerings. Learn more here.
