American Institute of Architects

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has been an influential partner and support of Chyanne and HUS architecture. Locally, the AIA Chicago Chapter serves as a vibrant hub for the architectural community.

HUS architecture owes much of our start to the mentorship and support found at the AIA Chicago Small Practitioners Group (SPG).  This group served as the catalyst for Chyanne's mission to support small firms where she joined the board in 2015 and serves as the events coordinator.

Nationally, Chyanne was elected as the regional representative of the Small Firm Exchange (SFx) in 2015 and served as the 2018 chair.  We strongly believe in the mission of the SFx to support and advance small firms in advocacy, practice, and leadership through outreach and conference curated collections. 

To further her supportive role, Chyanne was selected to join the AIA National Small Project Practitioners (SPP) board in 2018 and will serve as the 2021 chair.  The group supports the awareness of quality design in small projects.

Chyanne has supported the AIA and architectural profession through the following publications and speaking engagements:

2018 Architect Magazine
2018 CACE Convention
2018 AIA Chicago Transform 2.0 
2018 AIAS Thrive
2017 Chicago Architectural Biennial
