2015 AIA Detroit Board Elections

To:  AIA Detroit Board Nominees
 
This year, the AIA Detroit Board of Directors has formally recognized, agreed to, and documented the direction and methods our Chapter will use to support the Vision of AIA Detroit.  This is not a radical change in direction; rather, it is the result of the work of past Boards and Presidents as we have purposefully and carefully adjusted our course to best support the membership and the profession by
 
• Energizing and supporting our emerging professionals so that they recognize the importance of becoming registered and participating in the AIA.
• Reaching outwards to the broader design community to collaborate and partner with like minds and efforts to spotlight the positive impact design has on the environment.
• Taking action by involving ourselves in key community and civic initiatives that are shaping our city and region.
• Merging the work of committees and Board so that they are mutually supportive.
• Become active and influential participants in the historic changes developing in the City of Detroit.
 
In order to effectively move forward, support and further enhance our stated direction, Board members must be active participants in our initiatives and programs.  If you are willing to commit your time and energy to meet each month as a member of the AIA Detroit Board and to dedicate additional time and energy outside of those Board meetings to actively engage in initiatives and programs, then this is your opportunity.  This is the expectation of all AIA Detroit Board members moving forward.

Project Description:

This project consists of a new 375 seat sanctuary addition with associated lower level community spaces. The total size of the new addition is 14,000SF, 7000SF each floor. The concept is based on the cross sectional articulation of a box and how to manipulate light into the interior of the worship space. The box, or church, is divided into a series of tiers and clerestories. The first represents the support area and seating of the Church. The second tier represents the Chancel or religious activity area of the Church. The third tier, created above the pipe organ platform, allows northern light to spill onto the pipe organ and Chancel area. Each tier is structurally detailed to strengthen its space below.

Intended to be intimate from its inception, the sanctuary allows the congregation to be no further than 40 feet from the Communion Table and Chancel. Further efforts to increase natural light into the sanctuary are derived through the use of high clerestories around the box.  On the exterior, the raised tier of the sanctuary is defined with horizontal lapboard siding.  Protruding out of this material is the pipe organ platform, sheathed with vertical siding, expressing the vertical nature of the pipe organ. The remaining portions of the exterior building materials are defined with two colors of masonry, one representing the boundaries of the square, and the other representing the support areas of the Sanctuary. A 57’-0” high steel cross emanates from the Chancel and penetrates the roof expressing the Church’s mission and invitation to the community.
