AIA Nebraska, A Society of The American Institute of Architects, announced this year's excellence in design winners in conjunction with their annual convention, September 10-11, in Omaha, Nebraska.
At the Excellence in Design Gala, AIA Nebraska presented four Honor Awards and ten Merit Awards selected from Nebraska architects' submissions by the following Knoxville, Tennessee jury members: John Sanders, AIA, Sanders Pace Architecture, Jury Chair; Chad Boetger, AIA, BARBERMcMURRY architects; Tricia Smith, AIA, curb; and Brandon Pace, AIA, Sanders Pace Architecture.
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. Six 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. In addition, there are two categories for emerging architects and architecture students, 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.
