About AIA Redwood Empire

AlA Redwood Empire, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects, is an association that represents member architects and professionals in eight Northern California regions including Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino, Modoc, Siskiyou, Sonoma, and Trinity counties. Over its 43-year history, the chapter has provided its members with opportunity for professional development and continuing education through programs, design awards, local and national advocacy and community leadership.

The chapter’s roots can be traced back to the 1930’s and Clarence Caukins, a man who headed what was then Santa Rosa’s only architecture firm. As the area grew, one of Caukin’s employees left to form J. Clarence Felciano Architects. This marked the beginning of many new firms, and by the 1950’s, there was a growing need for communication between them. To meet the need, the San Francisco based AlA Northern California chapter created a special Sonoma County Section. Unfortunately, the Section was a weak voice and was not involved in many local issues.
