Who we are

CRAN® presents information and facilitates the exchange of knowledge and expertise to promote the professional development of its members via discussion forums, national symposia and conventions, publications, and local activities.

    You are invited to check out the 13th annual Homes by Architects Tour, a residential home tour hosted by AIA Minnesota showcasing the talents and vibrancy of our region's residential architecture community, from the comfort of your own home! 

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on gatherings of large groups, AIA Minnesota has utilized the cutting-edge 3D technology of Matterport to bring visitors virtually inside each of the 17 projects featured this year. You'll experience 360-views of every space within these stunning homes, see photo galleries and videos of the architects talking about their designs. Plus, you'll have access to chat with the architects during our 5-event series of "Live Chats." Ticket holders can ask questions, hear the stories behind the projects, and talk with the architects in an intimate, virtual setting.

    A $15 tickets gives you unlimited access to all of this, plus the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting your colleagues in the Midwest. Tickets are available now until October 10. Purchase yours at Homes by Architects Tour.
