My Favorite Places

AIA Orange County has started a new Public Awareness Campaign to be an ongoing series of articles, written by architects about some of their favorite or most memorable spaces.  It could be a building, a park, a town, whatever is special to that person, but they must be located in Orange County.  This is  My Favorite Places. 

 We are looking for members to contribute to this series.   If you are interested in writing a short article about one of your favorite place, please fill out the My Favorite Places Blogger Application Form below. Photos will be requested once content is verified.
