Who we are

The Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN®) Knowledge Community develops knowledge and information to benefit architects who are engaged in, or who are interested in learning more about, custom residential practice. 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.

    An interview with Warren Lloyd, AIA - Warren is Chair of AIA CRAN® National.

    In this interview, you'll learn why residential architects say, that for those who design and build custom homes, there is no other event, held anywhere else in the country, like this Symposium!

    Here's a great opportunity to learn about one of the nation's most cherished custom home design events.

    In this interview, Warren explains what CRAN® is all about, and what CRAN®  is doing to draw a more diverse group of people to the field of residential architecture. He also details what you will gain by attending, either as an architect, a custom builder, an architectural product manufacturer, or as a student. Salt Lake City was selected for this year's event, and Seattle is the location for 2024. Warren's firm Lloyd Architects was recently awarded Firm of the Year by AIA Utah. I think you'll enjoy this interview.
