This November marks the 59th annual Honor Awards hosted by The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Seattle chapter, honoring architects for their creative solutions and resourceful projects.¬† Unlike traditional awards programs, the Honor Awards present a critical dialogue on architecture ‚ÄĒ what it means, what it could be and why we care.¬† The program is unique, brings together hundreds of design professionals and according to one former juror, the AIA Seattle Honor Awards program is ‚Äúthe best state or local design awards I have juried.¬† They should all be done this way.‚ÄĚ
