7 ALUMNI + 3 FACULTY Congratulations!
Selected by a jury of distinguished architects based across the United States and conversant in the field’s potential at national and international levels, the AIA|LA Design Awards honor design excellence in some of the most significant completed projects in the country at this time. The caliber of work submitted and volume of submissions make the program amongst the most competitive AIA chapters host.
Winners of the competition’s counterpart, the AIA|LA Next LA awards, bestowed on as yet unbuilt commissions, were also announced. These dynamic solutions for our future were selected by an esteemed multi-disciplinary jury which included prestigious architects, a noted academic, and the Los Angeles Times architecture critic.
This year saw the AIA|LA launch its first COTE LA awards, given to projects that further and/or demonstrate achievement in the implementation of sustainability features. These winning projects were selected by experts and innovators in the field, who noted performance, systems integration and other key elements in addition to design.
