  • Michael F. Malinowski AIA has provided adaptive historic re-use, urban infill, affordable housing, single family residential and commercial revitalization design solutions for 34 years as Principal of Applied Architecture Inc, Sacramento, CA. 

    An alumnus of the University of Michigan, Mike has been active in AIA for over 35 years. Prior to election to the National AIA Board, he served as VP Communications for AIA California Council where he launched both social media and a new CMS based web platform.  In 2009, Michael was awarded the AIA Grassroots Excellence Award - Outstanding Individual Contribution for his work in virtual voting and meetings.  

    A founding member and Chair of Sacramento’s Development Oversight Commission, Mike helped spearhead process improvements that took Sacramento from dead last to first in surveys of regional building departments.  He chaired Sacramento’s Preservation and Design Review Boards for a combined ten years of service, and he founded the AIACV Code Conversation program over a decade ago which has brought increased connection and consistency between regional code officials and the design professions.  In 2008, Michael was named one of the Sacramento Region’s “100 Most Influential Persons.”

    Several years ago Michael launched to support and promote the leadership role of Architects across the country in implementing streamlining measures appropriate to their local communities.  He has been making presentation on Permit Streamlining around the country, including Denver, Minneapolis, Chicago, Portland, Baltimore, Charlotte, Santa Rosa, and Long Beach.

    Michael has been working with a small group focused on the launch of the first Professional Architectural Program in California’s Central Valley, using a new educational paradigm that will integrate education, practice experience, and licensure and has served as the Architect for the new school facility, created from a former muffler shop, set to open in late Fall 2014.
