AIA DESIGN AWARDS
The biennial AIA Delaware Design Awards Program is dedicated to recognizing significant achievements of its Members in planning, design, and execution of architectural projects; establishing a standard of excellence against which architects can measure their own performance; promoting public awareness and appreciation of the value of architecture and architectural practice; and to promoting the work of our AIA Delaware members.
For each program, the Design Awards features a jury comprised of architect practitioners representing firm sizes and diversity of practices similar in nature to those of AIA Delaware’s membership and a public member/business person closely related to the architecture and design industry who come together in their hometown to review each submitted project.
Awards are given in two categories: Built and Unbuilt. The highest level of award bestowed by AIA Delaware is the Honor Award, followed by the Merit Award and the Citation Award. Design Awards are presented at a Celebration of Architecture Design Ball.
