AIA OHIO DESIGN AWARDS PROGRAM

The design awards program seeks to focus attention on quality design, high performance design and AIA’s Framework for Design Excellence.  The intent is to promote AIA’s initiatives and to encourage Ohio architects to think more holistically about their design.

    • Category 1: Newly Completed Buildings
    • Category 2: Additions, Renovations and Restorations
    • Category 3: Interior Architecture
    • Category 4: Small Projects (Less than 5,000 sf and under $1.5M)
    • Category 5: Unbuilt Projects (Not built and not intended to be realized)
    • Category 6: 25 Year Award

In addition to the above six categories, AIA Ohio shall have two supplemental design awards available for considerations.  These include:

    • The AIA Ohio Impact Award
    • The AIA Ohio People’s Choice Award

The 2021 Design Awards Jury will be chaired by Marsha Maytum, FAIA, from LMS Architects in San Francisco.
