Wondering how to make the most of your budget? Curious about green design or how to plan for your family’s changing needs? Whether your project is a small remodel or new construction — or if you are just curious about the design process — AIA architects can help. Join us at these monthly Saturday morning seminars for an information-packed overview of the design and construction process including budget and schedule, tips for hiring the right team, and how you and your designer can work together to make the most of any project.

Whether you already have an architect in mind or are searching AIA Seattle’s Find an Architect, looking on Houzz, or calling based on a recommendation, it’s important to know what questions to ask and how your architect will benefit your specific project. Visit TopicA to learn more about finding and working with an architect.

AIA Seattle partners with Seattle magazine to highlight exceptional residential design solutions. A full list of past homes can be found here – and look for the AIA Seattle Homes of Distinction every other month in the Shelter section of the magazine, or on seattlemag.com.

AIA Seattle’s ADU Tour has been moved to an online format – the ADU Showcase. This Showcase highlights ADUs designed by AIA Seattle member architects. Each ADU is uniquely designed based on local regulations, site conditions, family needs, and client preferences

We are accepting applications for attached or detached ADUs to showcase on our website. You can find more info here and access the submittal form to submit your project.

2021 is a year of aspiration. Emerging from COVID lockdown, we are ready to take a deep breath and consider our future. Aspiration means ambition and the act of breathing in. Seattle Architecture Foundation’s 24th Annual Architectural Model Exhibit theme Breathe is meant to inspire submissions that reflect on this dual meaning: faced with the passing of an immediate crisis, how will we pause and rethink our world? When we do exhale, what new forms will we breathe into life?
