Project: AEI is currently working with Indigenous Design Studio + Architecture to complete the Kayenta Chapter’s new vision of their chapter house. The historic building is outdated, does not provide for technology, modern spaces, or have cultural influence. Kayenta first set precedent with creating a new Township. Now, the Kayenta Chapter will lead the Navajo Nation by creating a place that is truly the hub and core of the community. While the new facility has an outlook to the future, the design will honor tradition by incorporating the language, culture, and traditions of the Kayenta community. The Kayenta Chapter Multi-Purpose Center will consist of conference spaces, chapter administration space, community resource center, and a community kitchen. In addition, the Multi-Purpose Center will encourage creativity, fitness and health, and multi-generation integration by providing an arts & crafts classroom, fitness rooms, locker rooms, multi-purpose space, community pantry, youth learning and activity area, recreational hall, and a senior center. AEI provided all Civil plan production and engineering analysis.
