Join the AIAri Emerging Professionals Committee on Saturday, May 09, 2015, for a tour of the new Tiverton Public Library. The new 24,000 sf library includes a community meeting room, a children’s library, a teen room, a local history room and a sunset reading terrace. With close proximity to town recreational fields, a new mixed-use artist’s cooperative and the middle school and high school, the library will be the primary meeting place for this rural community of 17,000 people. The building is participating in National Grid’s Advanced Buildings Program and is designed to perform 45% better than the 2009 Rhode Island state energy code.

PARK(ing) Day 2014!

30 Sep

PARK(ing) Day Providence 2014 was a success!

On September 19th, AIAri’s Emerging Professionals Committee took part in PARK(ing) Day Providence 2014 along with a number of other Rhode Island architecture firms, businesses, organizations and schools to transform parking spaces into “parklets” for a day. The goal: to bring awareness to the importance of green spaces and public parks in urban areas. Our space was located just outside AIAri’s Window on Architecture and immediately adjacent to the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA).  Together, we were able to engage the public with a large scale game of checkers amidst numerous plantings.  Take a look:

PARK(ing) Day 2014 (1) AIAri’s and ASLA’s “parklets” on Washington Street just outside AIAri’s Window on Architecture.


Who shall reign supreme?  Will it be Blue?  Or will it be Red?

The AIAri Emerging Professionals Committee would like to thank All Island Landscape for donating plantings for the day and Patcraft for donating the carpet tiles we used to create our checkerboard!

We’d also like to thank ASLA for taking part in this event with us and Aquidneck Landworks, who supplied ASLA with plants for the day.
