Please join us this spring as we examine the rebirth of Detroit and how it is being fueled by a consortium of 21st Century educational and busienss models that are quickly changing the "perception" of Detroit from economic wasteland to a viable alternative and opportunity for a new generation. We will explore the conections between creative learning, knowledge spaces, history and revitalization. At the AIA Committee on Architecture for Education 2015 Spring Conference, we will look at the lessons from the past that Detroit continues to provide, while at the same time looking to its future, as an unexpected model for the evolution of a new cultural, economic and educational urban environment.

AIA Community Service/Legacy Program
The AIA Legacy Events program was developed to promote sustainability and a legacy in the cities we visit. The AIA and American Institute of Architecture Students are working jointly to promote team-building and a dedication to leave a city better than it was before we arrived. Through volunteer activities we hope to create a lasting memory for architects, architectural students, and the general public.View the first issue of the AIA Legacy Event Newsletter
Green Meeting Tips
Before you throw your jack-o-lanterns and decorative gourds in the trash can, consider this frightful fact: the seeds from pumpkins germinate in landfills and the pumpkin vines create significant problems when composting trash. Instead, consider more environmentally friendly alternatives for recycling your Halloween and autumn decor: Chop up your pumpkin and burry it in your garden. Pumpkins are biodegradable and easily break down in the Earth's soil; Compost the pumpkin. Pumpkins can do wonders for soil, but make sure to remove the seeds before sending it to the compost; Recycle it as a plant potter. Arrange flowers and other greenery in the top of your pumpkin to use as table decor; Discard it in a forest or woodsy area. Insects and animals, like squirrels and deer, will naturally break the pumpkin down by making a snack of it.
