AIA Nebraska, A Society of The American Institute of Architects, announced this year's excellence in design winners in conjunction with their annual convention, October 2-3, in Lincoln, Nebraska.
At the Excellence in Design Gala, AIA Nebraska presented three Honor Awards and eight Merit Awards selected from Nebraska architects' submissions by the following San Francisco, California jury members: Jury Chair, Mark Cavagnero, FAIA, Mark Cavagnero Associates; Elizabeth Ranieri, FAIA, LEED AP, Design Principal, Kuth/Ranieri Architects; and Leo Chow, AIA, Design Partner, SOM.
Nebraska offered the general public a chance to participate in a separate online voting process to determine the winners from the field of distinguished entrants. Four winning projects were selected.
The Excellence in Design program is an annual event for Nebraska architects who submit built and unbuilt projects for consideration. Categories for consideration include Architecture, Interior Architecture, Unbuilt, and Details. This year, two new categories for Emerging Architects were developed, including Unbuilt Design and Architectural Detail. Projects are judged based on a variety of features, including unique design, originality, extended use attributes, sustainability, budget, and use of environmental surroundings.
AIA Nebraska supports architects in fulfilling their commitment to excellence in design and livability in our buildings and communities. Further information on this year's design winners and past winners can be found on the American Institute of Architects, Nebraska Chapter's website www.aiane.org.
