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.

The Seattle Design Festival features citywide tours, exhibits, outdoor installations, activities, interactive workshops and more from September 6-21. Our 2018 theme, TRUST, examines the role of design thinking in bringing together and building TRUST among diverse communities. The Seattle Design Festival is a program of Design in Public, a strategic initiative of AIA Seattle, founded in 2011 to celebrate and explore the role and impact of design on urban life in Seattle.

For 21 years the Seattle Architecture Foundation has hosted the Architectural Model Exhibit, an opportunity for local architects and designers to connect and share their work with the Seattle community. This year’s theme  – Transparency – encourages entrants to explore the rich interplay between architectural design and civic life.
