Welcome to Ann Arbor!
The City of Ann Arbor was founded in 1824, and the University of Michigan was permanently located here in 1837. The blend of city and university forms a "college town" atmosphere that is pedestrian friendly, beautiful, exciting and enlightening. As you experience the area’s architecture, you will see how closely the city and the university are intertwined.
The Huron Valley Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) has worked collectively to create this brochure for your enjoyment.
The Chapter, comprised of registered architects from Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe and Washtenaw counties, engages in initiatives to increase the public’s knowledge and appreciation of architecture and the built environment, as well as promote advocacy for the profession.
The entries in the guide were chosen based on their architectural, historical and/or cultural significance, and the guide is intended to highlight just a small cross-section of the many beautiful and significant works of architecture in our community. ..." See the PDF for more information
