AIA Detroit Celebration of Architecture Takeaway

As summers ends and the school semester begins, we find many opportunities to celebrate design and its impact on our world. Whether we visit Art Prize in Grand Rapids or the Detroit Design Festival (DDF), we are reminded that design impacts everything we touch, and everything we touch is designed. 


Last week in Detroit, AIA Detroit paired with the DDF to celebrate architect’s careers, both successful and budding, and award-winning projects. These projects by Detroit design firms represent the best projects by Detroit architects in and around Michigan and the country.

As architects and designers, opportunities like the Celebration remind us of architects’ impact on the world in which we live and design. Our projects and buildings and we as designers have the tremendous opportunity and responsibility to improve our daily lives as well as protect them. Spaces that we design shape the ways that we live and work. They also create feelings of being welcomed, lift spirits and awareness, and create places that keep us comfortable, safe, and healthy.
