Are you dreaming of building a new home? Or remodeling one you already own? Mark your calendar for April 25. That’s your opportunity to glean ideas and insights from some of the Twin Cities’ leading design experts at “Your Ideal Home,” an evening of architecture and design presented by AIA Minnesota and the Star Tribune.

A panel of architects and homeowners will offer an inside look at the process of creating a personalized home, followed by a Q&A session, so bring your questions.

If you’d like a one-on-one conversation about your dream project, you can sign up for a 30-minute consultation with an AIA Minnesota residential design professional for $30.

You’ll also get the first look at this year’s 12 selected Home of the Month projects.

The evening starts with a social hour at 5:30 with light bites and a cash bar, followed by the program at 6:30. American Swedish Institute, 2600 Park Av. S., Mpls. Admission is $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Register at, or in person at AIA Minnesota, 105 5th Av. S., Suite 485, Mpls.
