The Chicago chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) hosts the biggest little party of the year, showcasing the best residential, commercial and institutional architecture and functional objects designed over the past year. Complimentary bites and beverages provided - including beer generously donated by Lagunitas Brewing Company.
Presented by the AIA Chicago Small Practitioners Group, the goal of this awards program is to raise public awareness of the value that architects bring to small projects and to promote small practitioners as a resource for design excellence. All firms in the competition have fewer than nine licensed architects and architectural interns. All submitted projects are less than 5,000 square feet in size.
Come on over to Architectural Artifacts in Ravenswood if you:
- are planning to hire an architect for your home or small business
- want to make connections within Chicago's architectural community
- wish to be inspired by the amazing work being done in Chicago on a smaller scale - no skyscrapers here!
