Awarded Projects Prove that Great Architecture Performs as well as Inspires.

At a sold-out event Monday night, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Seattle chapter honored architects from across Washington State for innovative, and in some cases, groundbreaking projects exemplifying best examples in a broad array of settings from single- and multi-family residential, to health care, to civic, to commercial.

“This is an awards program that is moving away from focusing on “the money shot” in terms of measuring excellence in architecture,” said David Baker FAIA of San Francisco, one of the AIA Honor Awards jurors.  “It was great to see the high degree of sustainable design. The Pacific Northwest is clearly a leader in this area.”
