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 quarterly 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.

Created by the AIA Seattle Small Practice and Residential Committee (SPARC), the Northwest Featured Home program is intended to showcase the best of Northwest residential architecture. Our purpose is to educate the public about the breadth, variety and quality of residential architecture in the region. In doing so we hope to raise the bar on building design in the Northwest, starting with the home, the place where people spend the majority of their time.

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.

Diversity by Design: Equity in Architecture showcases 7 Northwest Regional projects submitted to Diversity Roundtable’s open call to celebrate the work of underrepresented designers. This show, which complements the Diversity by Design website, offers an opportunity for underrepresented architects to showcase their work and highlights the experience and impact community involvement has on the architect of color, the design of the building, and the community in which the building resides.
