    Join us for Design in the Hills 2024


    Design in the Hills is unique in the design world; although there are sponsors and continuing education credits, very little of it is provided in a traditional classroom setting. The conference is interactive and mobile. Design in the Hills is a unique gathering of architects, landscape architects, interior designers, engineers and artists from across the state, along with members of the community who all connect to celebrate and elevate the standard of design.

    Each year, AIA South Dakota focuses on projects and places of interest in the Black Hills communities. Tours for 2024 include South Middle School, Monument Health, the Our Lady of Perpetual Help cathedral, the McGillycuddy House and Block 5, and we'll hold our sponsor expoduring happy hour at Ugly Graffiti in downtown Rapid City.
