ARE Study Guides and Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice available at the Louisville Free Public Library
The AIA/CKC recently purchased a copy of the Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice (15th edition) and donated the copy to the Louisville Free Public Library. In response to a recent request. The intent was to make this book available to candidates studying for the ARE although this book may be checked out by anyone with a library card.
Click Here for a link to info on the book at LFPL.
Also, as a reminder, the ARE Study Guides (version 4.0) were purchased about three years ago by the chapter and donated at the Louisville Free Public Library for use by candidates studying for the ARE. These study guides are still available.

AIA/CKC July Program - Plant Tour of Kitchen Kompact
July Program: Plant Tour of Kitchen Kompact
Location: 911 East 11th Street, Jeffersonville, IN 47130
Date: Tuesday, July 18, 2017
Kitchen Kompact is a national kitchen cabinet manufacturer located in Jeffersonville, Indiana - just across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky. Established in 1937, Kitchen Kompact continues today to produce stock kitchen cabinets sold in truckload quantities to distributors and retailers in all of the lower 48 states.
This tour of Kitchen Kompact's 30-acre property and 650,000 square foot plant will take participants on a journey that begins in a world of flying cabinets. First suspended in the air, then moving along automated floor conveyers and finally coming to rest in a finished goods warehouse with the capacity to hold 100,000 cabinets at any one time. Experiencing this streamlined production facility firsthand, attendees will observe how the factory's 225 employees are able to produce from 5,000-10,000 cabinets per day... in one shift!

The Central Kentucky Chapter is the oldest of AIA Kentucky’s chapters. Established on February 3,1908, it was the state’s only AIA chapter until 1952 when the Eastern Kentucky Chapter was organized. AIA Kentucky was formed in 1962 Known as the “CKC”, this chapter has always been headquartered in Louisville, with AIA members throughout the central, southern, and western regions of Kentucky.
Louisville architect Charles Clarke was selected to be the first president. He was also the first Kentucky architect to join the Western Society of Architects in 1882. But he died on March 9, 1908, and his partner, Arthur Loomis, fulfilled the remainder of the year as president. Loomis was a well-known architect who created many local landmarks: Speed Art Museum, Conrad-Caldwell House, Levy Building; St. Peter’s Church; St. Paul’s Church; etc.
To promote architecture in the city and state, the chapter presented an exhibition of architecture in 1912. This event involved all of the prominent Kentucky architects of the period. As a result, a book was published that catalogued all of the building projects that the various firms had produced. This book is still referenced today as a valuable historical resource.
James Murphy, who was president when this exhibit was held, was a very active member of the chapter. He was the brother to D. X. Murphy, whose firm created Churchill Downs, the old Jefferson County Jail, and other notable buildings. Their firm still operates today under the name of Luckett & Farley. James Murphy was a vocal advocate for better civic design and planning. His efforts eventually led to the state’s first planning commission in 1928, of which he became the first chairman.
The list of former presidents is a ‘who’s who’ of legendary architects within Louisville and Kentucky, a few of which are: Mason Maury; Brinton B. Davis; Herman Wischmeyer; C. Julian Oberwarth; Frederick Morgan; Frederick Louis; as well as several father and sons: Arnold Judd, (Sr. and Jr.) and Thomas Dade Luckett (II and III). Read more...
