If you happen to be wandering around Los Angeles, New York City or Washington D.C. this weekend, download the pilot AIA Broadcastr App and transform yourself into a multimedia tourist. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is forming a partnership with Broadcastr to create an app that offers in-depth building information, exclusive interviews with architects and a vast library of narratives from local professionals that reveal the stories and facts behind buildings of architectural significance based on your location.

“Imagine standing in front of one of the world’s great buildings and listening to the architect tell you about her inspiration,” said Andy Hunter, CEO of Broadcastr. “We are thrilled that our partnership with AIA makes that possible.”

The AIA Broadcastr is available on Apple and Android. Let us know your thoughts if you try it out!
