The Intern Development Program Advisory Committee (IDPAC) named ten 2011-2014 IDP Firm Award recipients: Blitch Knevel Architects; Darden Architects; Trivers Associates; the Atlanta, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Phoenix, and Bentonville, Ark. offices of BRR Architecture and the Austin, Texas and San Antonio offices of O’Connell Robertson.
The Intern Development Program started in 1976 as a pilot program developed by the AIA and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards to ensure the continued support of interns by the changing profession of architecture. IDP is a profession-wide, comprehensive training program that is focused on the professional development of architectural interns. Through a series of required activities, IDP enables participants to acquire knowledge, understanding and skills that form the core competencies related to successful architectural practice. IDP is structured in a way that effectively responds to the training needs of architectural interns by providing a wide range of resources, established progressive benchmarks, advice and mentor guidance throughout the extensive internship process.
