The mission of the Residential Architecture Committee is to increase public awareness of the value of working with an AIA Minnesota architect in all phases of design and construction and provide a forum to elevate the practice of residential architecture.

The committee also plans and organizes awards and feature programs throughout the year in partnership with the Star Tribune as a way to engage with the public, and works with several municipalities in the Twin Cities area on their home revitalization programs.

The residential architecture committee is a member of the AIA CRAN (Custom Residential Architects Network) Knowledge Community. Click here to access the CRAN community website.
