AIA Nebraska, A Chapter of The American Institute of Architects, announced this year’s excellence in design winners in conjunction with their annual convention, October 5-6, 2017 in Omaha, Nebraska.

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. Seven 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, Details and Masonry. 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.
