Arizona’s chapter of CRAN (Custom Residential Architects Network) kicked off the new year with a tour of the Meltdown Glass factory. The tour had a successful turnout and guests learned how pieces are developed and what they can be used for, each piece being unique. March’s meeting will be held on 3/23 at the AIA office downtown from 11:30am – 1:00pm. Architects will have the opportunity to take the floor to introduce themselves and are invited to bring one image of their work or something that inspires them. We will then have an open discussion on topics relating to current issues and trends.
The AIA Arizona office is located at 30 North 3rd Avenue, #200 Phoenix, AZ 85003. Lunch will be provided. To RSVP, contact Diana Smith at email@example.com or call the AIA office at 602-252-4200.
We invite all residential architects, and those on their path to licensure, who practice residential architecture, and whether you work on bathrooms, kitchens, additions to existing residences or new builds, then you are invited to join AZ CRAN! Becoming involved with the AZ CRAN chapter is the best way to tap into what the national AIA/ CRAN (Custom Residential Architects Network) has to offer and helps build momentum for the AIA’s most active knowledge community! If you have interest in joining us or hosting a meeting, please contact Joanna McBride or Scott Carson at 480-477-1111.
