About the Foundation

The Minnesota Architectural Foundation (MAF) originated in 1970 as MSA Foundation for Environmental Research, with a purpose of studying potential computer applications in architecture. In 1979, following receipt of a bequest from William Berget, the name was changed to MSAIA Architectural Foundation, incorporated for charitable, scientific and educational purposes.
