AIA Michigan 

Champion the profession. Nurture our chapters. Build Michigan better.
Mar. 12 - Mar. 16, 2018
Weekly Highlights

AIA Michigan Fellows Committee is looking for recommendations of candidates for Fellowship. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Elevation to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual but also elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society. The Fellowship Committee is asking every chapter in the State to recommend those members they feel could be a candidate for recognition. Please contact Evelyn Dougherty with your recommendations for her to forward to the Fellows Committee.

The City Through Cartography
Timeline Mapping I Lyz Luidens
Thursday March 15; 5:30pm-7:30pm
In this workshop, we'll be choosing one specific place in Detroit (as specific as your home, or as broad as a whole neighborhood). We'll be making several prints of this one place at different points in time, as your relationship with the location or the physical location itself has changed. We can create several different prints to show this time passing, or layer our prints on top of one another to show the passing of time and the ways the city has changed. To create these prints, we'll be using Styrofoam to create relief prints, as well as having the option of adding collograph and monoprint elements to our visual timelines. Materials will be provided.
Public Space Printing I Lyz Luidens
Tuesday March 20; 5:30pm-7:30pm
In this workshop, we'll be choosing memories that happened in public spaces in Detroit; parks, streets, bus stops, libraries, etc. We'll be creating relief printing blocks out of Styrofoam to create our maps. Materials will be provided.

The AIA Mid-Michigan Executive Committee has moved the March membership meeting date to the afternoon of March 21 to coincide with the 23rd Annual Architects, Engineers & Surveyors Legislative Day. Events will be held at the Christman Building, 208 N. Capitol Avenue, Lansing. The membership meeting will be held at 2:30 in the 6th floor boardroom. Our presenter will be Chad Clark from The Christman Company and he will be describing the Michigan State Capitol infrastructure and geothermal project. It is open to all Legislative Day participants! Please click here for more information.

Please note that the flyer implies that one must pay our political action committee (APAC) to attend. That is  NOT  the case. If you can pay the $75, great. If you can pay less, also great. If you cannot pay, please attend anyway; and yes that is still great. There is no requirement to pay APAC. Your attendance is much more val uable.
