Do you have an architecturally significant home? Building one? Love your architect?

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) East Bay are seeking submissions. They are looking for photos of outstanding architecturally significant homes with a narrative and the name of the US licensed architect that are newly constructed or renovated projects ranging from single family homes, lofts, urban living, in-law units, bungalows to multi unit, co-housing, historic homes or new additions and remodels.

This years goal for the Sixth Annual AIA East Bay Home Tours is to show a variety of residential work featured in the region, demonstrating the diversity that is achieved when working with architects in Alameda, Contra Costa, Napa or Solano Counties.

The Home Tours Committee will be visiting homes that jury to make the short list to determine the winning participants in preparation for the August 2017 Home Tours. Submission Guidelines>

Make sure to earmark your time to tour these magnificent homes this August and become involved with AIA East Bay. They offer a monthly program and panel discussion to the public with wine/beer networking reception for a small fee and lunch time learning "bring your own lunch" program. Providing community outreach, they focus on vital topics of earthquake safety, fire safety, sustainable design and other architect-related issues relating to well-informed design and development for the Bay area.

Here are Resources for the Public to learn about interviewing architects, agreements, questions for your Architect and a Consumers Guide; courtesy of AIA East Bay. Stay tuned for further information as the winners are announced and the self-tour is published.
