[Image]Exploring the AIA's Guides to Equitable Practice

The Guides for Equitable Practice, done in partnership with the University of Washington, the University of Minnesota, and The American Institute of Architects' Equity and the Future of Architecture Committee (EQFA), are a vital part of AIA's long-term commitment to lead efforts that ensure the profession of architecture is as diverse as the nation we serve. You can find the Guides for Equitable Practice here.


After 2 years off, Canstruction is back but with a twist. Due to supply chain issues we have to limit the can labels to 2 or 3 different ones. We will select the 2 to 3 different can types and labels, then all teams will have to figure out how to use them. As design professionals, we are all used to design constraints. So it's just another day at the office.

The Canstruction build day will be held at Lenny Boy Brewing on October 1st. Register your Canstruction Team here. Space is limited this year so don't wait!
