    Posted 08-26-2020 12:15 PM

    Hello everyone,

    Some of you may have attended AIA Minnesota's annual home tour showcasing the work of our residential architect members in past years, and this year I invite you to participate in our first-ever virtual tour!

    The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to embrace this new virtual format for our 13th annual event, but we are excited about the opportunity it presents to share the tour with practitioners and public audiences around the country. This year's tour features 17 new and remodeled, architect-design home projects from around Minnesota. For a $15 digital pass, you are given access to project descriptions, photo galleries, videos of design teams discussing their projects, and an immersive, 3D digital tour experience allowing you to navigate through every room in a project, with 360-degree views, utilizing the cutting-edge Matterport technology.

    Digital passes are available to purchase now at The tour content will be available to pass holders from September 26-October 10.

    I encourage you all to check out the work of your Minnesota peers and see what's happening in residential design in the Midwest region!
