In 2018, AIA Minnesota’s Women in Architecture Committee (WIA) began the FAIA Legacy Project. This project amplifies the achievements of our female fellows by documenting the stories of the Minnesota women architects recognized with the AIA’s highest membership honor.
Funding from the Minnesota Historical Society supported the first eleven interviews and oral histories; funding from the Minnesota Architectural Foundation (MAF) Women in Architecture Fund has enabled post-production of three interviews into documentaries. The Legacy Project’s work to document these important stories continues as the list of women elevated to Fellow in MN has grown to 20 as of 2023.
The completed documentaries can be viewed in their entirety below. Additional films will be added to this page as they are completed.
