10 projects win 2016 awards from AIA NWPR

Ten projects won 2016 Design Awards from the Northwest and Pacific Region chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

A total of 80 projects were entered by architects from Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana and Guam/Micronesia. The award categories were honor, merit and citation.

Elizabeth Chu Richter, last year’s AIA National president, moderated the awards event, which was held in Fairbanks in conjunction with the Alaska State Conference. AIA Alaska produces the annual conference, on which the AIA Northwest and Pacific Region partnered this year.

Richter is CEO of Richter Architects in Corpus Christi, Texas, and chaired the awards jury. It also included Peter Exley, a professor with the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, and Donna Kacmar, an associate professor at the University of Houston.

David E. Miller, a founding partner of The Miller Hull Partnership of Seattle, won the AIA NWPR Medal of Honor for Lifetime Achievement. Miller is a fellow of the American Institute of Architects and has over 40 years of experience.

In a press release, the chapter said Miller has elevated design quality throughout the United States, while building a practice that is a model for architectural firms, and inspiring and mentoring students.

The Firm of the Year award went to Bora Architects in Portland.

MW|Works Architecture + Design in Seattle won the Emerging Firm award.
