And the 2016 Institute Honor Awards for Architecture go to…
From about 500 submissions, 18 talented winners from across the globe were selected by the AIA for high honors in architecture, interior architecture, and interior design. Winners will be celebrated in May during the 2016 AIA Convention in Philadelphia during May 19th-May 21st, 2016.
The Institute Honor Awards program has recognized achievements in a variety of architectural activity since 1949. The goal of their program is to “elevate the quality of architecture practice, establish a standard of excellence against which all architects can measure performance, and inform the public of the breadth and value of their contributions.”
Over the years, categories for brand-new buildings (“Honor Current”) and for projects featuring restoration, rehabilitation, or “adaptive-re-use” have been added (“Honor Extended”). The Institute Honors Program has three divisions currently: Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Urban Design.
