Michael Lee Quinn

March 19, 1947 - January 25, 2018

It is with deep sadness that the American Institute of Architects, Huron Valley Chapter announces the passing of one of our members and friends, Michael Lee Quinn, FAIA.  Co-founder of Quinn Evans Architects and long-time champion of historic preservation and urban revitalization, Michael passed away on January 25, 2018. He was 70 years old. 

Michael was one of the nation’s most accomplished and respected architects.  His expertise in historic preservation and restoration was instrumental in the widespread growth and impact of this important field.  Last September, the AIA Huron Valley Chapter presented Michael with our Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2018 Honor Award Celebration.  This award was in honor of Michael’s contributions to the profession.  “Michael’s career of over 45 years has left indelible impressions not just through the buildings he helped to create, but through the lives of people he has inspired through his decades of mentoring and leadership.” (AIA Huron Valley Awards jury)
