A message from AIA Spokane Executive Director, Stephanie Aden
As a member-based organization, AIA Spokane is shifting its response to the public health crisis with remote learning and engagement opportunities and aggregating regional and national resources for our members. The AIA Spokane office will remain closed, but the Executive Director and board members are continuing to work remotely to serve you. We have compiled a list of membership, business and management related resources to connect you with what you need. Programming updates will continue to be make our homepage, events newsletter and monthly Keynote. If you have any questions or resources you'd like added to this list, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will add things here as we find them.
Residential Architect Community
AIA Spokane & Spokane Coeur d'Alene Living magazine will team up again in 2020 to feature five distinctive homes (new or renovated) in six issues in the magazine's Home of Distinction section.
Our latest HOD if featured in the April issue of Spokane Coeur d'Alene Living magazine . Designed by Architects West Inc., the home is located in the beautiful Bella Terra Garden Homes development in south Spokane. Our Residential Press Committee loved the "simple but bold modern forms, with durable, low maintenance exterior materials makes for an exciting and energetic atmosphere around the elegantly designed central garden/water feature."
AIA Spokane has announced the postponement of 2020 Design Awards and Architecture Month.
We intend to reschedule the 2020 Design Awards for later summer or fall. At this time, submissions will be due on July 2, 2020 at 5pm. The Architecture Month Committee worked hard these past few months to create events for April under the theme "Blueprint for Better Spokane." Most of these events provided continuing education credits for our members. We are working to schedule these events at a later date, either live or virtually. Stay tuned!
