Happy Monday -er- Tuesday!


I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and that you were able to celebrate Memorial Day in your preferred tradition.


We recently released the information about the special AIA Michigan, LTU and UDM Reception hosted at the Harley Ellis Devereaux office in Chicago during the AIA National Convention. If you are attending the convention and would like to join us, please review the flyer and RSVP to [email protected]! Thank you very much to Harley Ellis Devereaux and Herman Miller Healthcare for sponsoring what is sure to be a lively event!


This week we are busy preparing for the AIA Michigan Design Awards celebration on June 7, 2014 at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum! The brochure is available on our website so be sure to check out all the great projects and exemplary honorees and register today!!


The AIA encourages all types on non-traditional practice, but has always supported licensure within the architectural profession. To ensure that the profession remains strong, we want to help get more Michigan architects licensed! If you feel strongly about licensure, please review the A.R.E. Call for Speakers info sheet to choose how you can help.   


June isn't far away, so please mark your calendar for the Dumke Collection celebration on June 11th! We look forward to seeing this special collection dedicated at the Baldwin Library; be sure to read the full invitation and RSVP today!


Have a great week and remember to contact me anytime with your ideas or if you would like to join a committee!

Candidate for Michigan State House District 11

[Dearborn Heights (part), Garden City, Inkster, Livonia (part), Westland]


Dear Colleague,


As fellow design professionals, primarily Architects who reside in the cities of Dearborn Heights, Inkster, Garden City, Westland and Livonia which primarily comprises the 11th District of the State of Michigan House of Representatives and others of interest is the reason for this invitation.


A fellow Architect, Ned Apigian, AIA who also is an Elected Official, in his second (4) year term as a Councilman in the City of Dearborn Heights has decided to run for the open seat in the 11th District. Subsequently, we are primarily asking those of us most associated with the above Communities which comprise the 11th District to help one of our own to be elected, which will be beneficial to us collectively as a profession. Presently, only one engineer and a surveyor are legislators, NO Architects.


Ned has earned: two Associate Degrees, In Liberal Arts and Science, from the Henry Ford Community College; a Bachelors Degree In Architecture, from the University of Detroit; and a Masters Degree, in Urban Planning from Wayne State University. Ned is a NCARB Certified Architect, licensed in the State of Michigan, as an Architect; and as a Professional Community Planner; and also as a Residential Builder.


Please join us to meet Ned at my office on Wednesday May 28th at 6:00pm and let's see how we can all help him get elected for our mutual Professional benefit.


Fill out the bottom of the attached form and fax in your RSVP and mail your check to Tiseo Architects, Inc.                                  

Thanks:    Benedetto Tiseo, FAIA, NCARB
