A collaborative venture between AIA Minnesota and the Star Tribune, the Home of the Month program seeks to support a growing residential architecture community and educate the public regarding the benefits and value an architect brings to the building process; the diverse housing design choices open to homeowners; and the many possibilities of project scope and price range in which architects work with homeowner clients.

Each year since 2002, 12 residential projects have been selected from among a pool of submissions to be featured once a month in the Star Tribune’s Sunday Homes section. The featured projects are evaluated by a jury of peers and selected according to how well a project encourages a sense of place; how the finished work represents the homeowner’s vision of home; and how it responds to its surrounding context.
