BACK IN PERSON!
The AIA Detroit Celebration of Architecture is the largest annual gathering of AEC professionals in Michigan, and AIA Detroit is proud to use it as a platform to showcase how Design can be a driver for sustainable and equitable development around the world.
This year’s Month of Design theme is to bring unity to the forefront, showcasing how being United by Design holds the key to creating a future in which all people, and our planet, can thrive.
AIA Detroit is honored to once again shine a light on local, allied organizations who are just as committed to discovering new ways in designing inclusive cities for all.
NEW SCHEDULE FOR THE 2022 HONOR AWARDS & CELEBRATION:
AIA Detroit is moving the Honor Awards presentation to take place earlier in the evening. This will be done to host a smaller audience for the presentation and improve the sound quality. You must buy an Honor Awards ticket in order to attend this portion of the night.
NEW ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE 2022 CELEBRATION:
Artist Laura Earle, the organizer of The FET!SH Project, is organizing a pop-up flashmob style Fashion Show in Shed 3, during Eastern Market After Dark, featuring 16 Detroit women artists challenging female tropes in the media that shape our culture and hold us all back.
Laura Earle is a Detroit-based independent curator and artist whose work is a catalyst for community building and creating change, and we are excited to welcome her project and collaborative artists to Shed 3 during the Celebration of Architecture!
Special thank you to Design Core for sending Laura our way!
