EPC and CANstruction Host Successful Summer Social/KickOff

Special Thank You to our Sponsor, Brightwood Architecture, for making this evnt possible.

This July, over forty of our Detroit members gathered at the Emagine Royal Oak Theatre for the Emerging Professionals Committee’s Summer Mixer! Emerging and established architects alike came together to bowl, network, and learn about the many ways to get involved in the AIA Detroit Chapter. We were also able to view the “I Look Up” Film Challenge short films. They were selections from the 3rd installation of the series that invites architects and filmmakers to capture stories of how architecture is helping to change communities for the better.

We heard from representatives of the Committee on the Environment, Building Enclosure Council, Building Codes and Regulations Committee, Pechakucha Night Detroit, and more, all of which are always welcoming new members and participation. The night also served as a kickoff for Canstruction, which will take place on Noel Night again this year! More information for committees and events can be found at

Thank you to all who attended the event and to our generous sponsor, Brightwood Architecture Education. They donated a brand new set of ARE 5.0 study books to raffle off, and all proceeds went to support Canstruction. Congratulations to the lucky winner, who took home a brand new set of ARE 5.0 Study Guides! An additional set of study guides now lives in the AIA Detroit office; contact if you’d like to check one out!
