2020 Honor Awards | Submissions Open

Stay connected, and start a new conversation about design. On behalf of the Honor Awards Committee, we hope you are staying well, taking care, and taking action.

In the midst of a public health crisis and critical reckonings with systemic racism, we are wary to suggest in any simple terms that design solves problems. And yet, we believe in AIA Seattle’s vision of a culture of design that fosters equitable, resilient, and thriving communities. 

You play a vital role in showcasing the design leadership in our region, and we encourage you to share your work by submitting to AIA Seattle’s 2020 Honor Awards for Washington Architecture. It’s a new year, a new jury, and an expanded audience!

  • This year’s live event on November 16 will be virtualenabling us to broadcast globally the relevance of design in and from Washington State.
  • As a part of the submissions form, AIA Seattle is beta-testing the new Common App for Design Excellence, for use in the Energy in Design Award evaluation. This tool is a natural evolution of the Energy in Design Calculator, and an exciting opportunity for all Built submissions to move toward design that supports climate action.

If you have never submitted before or your project has not yet been recognized, this is your moment to connect and start a new conversation about design. Download the 2020 Call for Submissions + Guidelines.

– Ming-Lee Yuan, AIA & Kevin Snook, AIA | Co-chairs, Honor Awards Committee
