AIA Seattle picks 13 winners for 2018 awards

The American Institute of Architects Seattle chapter picked 13 winners in three categories — built, conceptual, and research and innovation — at the 68th annual Honor Awards event on Monday. There were 115 submittals.

This is the first year for the Research & Innovation category, which recognizes people who have made strides in research and innovation, and helps to raise public awareness of architects’ efforts in that area.

This is the third year for the Energy in Design Award, which recognizes projects that significantly reduce energy use while maintaining high quality design.

Here is the jury: Sunil Bald of New York, Will Laufs of Berlin/New York, Andrea Love of Boston and Dan Maginn of Kansas City. Elizabeth Golden of the University of Washington was the moderator.

The jury acknowledged the strong design culture that was reflected in the submittals, and applauded the winners for their masterful site strategies and building craft.

In addition to the 13 awards, it was the first year of the Young Voices Selection, a program that aims to engage and elevate young designers through participation in the honor awards. The YVS panelists are Siyu Qu of The Miller Hull Partnership, Anh Tran of Integrus Architecture, Allison Pericich of McLennan Design and Sarah Haase of Schemata Workshop.
