Welcome to AIA Grand Canyon -

March 2014 Meeting Recap No comments yet

The March meeting was wonderful. We had several activities at one meeting which made our investment of time most productive. We had a great board meeting. We were glad to have visitors from AIA Arizona attending. Thank you Tina Litteral, Charmissa Moore and Diana Smith for driving all the way up here and thank you for your offers to assist our chapter.

Pella provided lunch and gave us a most interesting seminar for CEUs. Lastly, but not leastly, Steven Mauk, the Director of Community Development for the County of Yavapai attended and presented some very interesting ideas for developing a relationship between the County and the local architects and AIA GCC. All together, the attendees received a lot of useful information and the Gurley Street Grill provided terrific service and delicious food. What a great day!

I anticipate another wonderful meeting next month when we meet in Clarkdale at the office of Reynold Radoccia AIA. We are going to have lunch provided by Hermann Miller and will then tour certain works of Reynold Radoccia AIA. I believe that it is vital that we support each other. We are the architects of the Grand Canyon Chapter. We should stand behind each other. It also happens to be a most interesting and enjoyable activity to see each others’ work.

The first in a series of tours of the work of our Chapter Architects! No comments yet

AIA GCC ANNOUNCES THE FIRST TOUR, IN A SERIES OF TOURS, OF THE WORK OF OUR OWN GRAND CANYON CHAPTER ARCHITECTS!

The Grand Canyon Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is proud to call Lee N. Christensen AIA, one of our own.  Mr. Christensen has agreed to lead of tour of some of his work in the Sedona area after our luncheon / general planning meeting on Feb. 11 in Sedona (see the announcement below for the details).  Other architects to follow with tours of their work are Reynold Radoccia AIA, Carl Ramsey AIA and Richard Davis AIA.  Please show up for these tours and support our respected members.  We will be touring the work of as many of our Chapters’ architects as possible.  Who better to celebrate the quality of the GCC members but the members ourselves?!

Here is a brief biography of Mr. Christensen and a description of the driving tour:

Mr. Christensen has been practicing architecture in Sedona since 1976. As a Graduate of the University of Arizona, his work has always been focused on respect for local conditions including; careful orientation to optimize sun control and views, use of local materials, energy efficiency and low maintenance and operation costs. Generally, the designs are in the contemporary, southwestern style, with allowances for the personal preferences of the clients.

Regarding the Tour of Mr. Christensens’ projects, there are four commercial buildings in West Sedona, on 89A, that we will drive by: Drycreek Plaza, Park Place, George Moore Dental Office and Aspey Watkins Diesel Office.  Then on Hwy 179 we will look at the Kings Ransom Motor Hotel.

Residential projects in West Sedona that we will also see are located on Soldier’s Pass Rd., (Bihler, Decker / Scribner, Rennie, Welch and Aranoff). Allow one hour for the full tour.  The tour is free to all who care to join us.

If any other members of the Grand Canyon Chapter would like to schedule a tour of their work please contact Claire Clark AIA, President of the Chapter, at 928-899-0963.  We would love to see  your work too!
