2018 AIA/CKC Associate Grant Applications - Still Available
The AIA Central Kentucky Chapter is now taking applications for AIA Associate Grants for the year 2018. The Board will also accept applications the Emerging Professionals Grants. This is a continuation of a successful program that gets Architectural Interns and Emerging Professionals active in the Central Kentucky Chapter. For those not familiar with the program, each year the AIA/CKC pays the membership costs for up to ten people to become Associate AIA members and for two licensed architects who have been licensed under 5 years and have never been an AIA member. Grant recipients are expected to be active in the chapter for the year the chapter pays for their membership, then continue their activity in future years and become the next generation of chapter leaders.
AIA Associate grant recipients are asked to serve on one or more of the following committees: Trade Fair, Programs, AXP, Communications (Website), House Tour, Urban Design, and Membership (Social).
Additionally ALL grant recipients will be expected to help on the day of the Trade Fair on March 6, 2018 and the day of the House Tour (date to be determined).
Current and prospective AIA Associate members are eligible. Applications should be returned by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Up to ten AIA Associate Grants and two Emerging Professional Grants will be awarded. Questions may be directed to Jean paul at (502)454-5632 ext 32.

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.

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.

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...
