The awards go to publicly funded projects designed in the last six years and are intended to honor the client as well as the architect. AIA Washington's goal is to recognize and reinforce public agencies striving to produce excellence in design of their projects.
Two honor, four merit and four citation awards were given in the built category. One merit and two citations were given to unbuilt projects, a new category this year. A total of 43 projects were entered.
Jurors were Donald King, DKA Architecture, Seattle; Stephen Murakami, Tacoma Public Schools; and Craig Conrad, MMEC Architecture, Spokane.
This year, AIA Washington co-hosted the awards banquet with the Masonry Institute of Washington. Winners of MIW's Excellence in Masonry Design Awards can be found in a separate special section.
