Any structure or building of any size or project type anywhere in the world designed by a Massachusetts architect/firm; or any structure or building or project type built in Massachusetts by any architect/firm anywhere in the world is eligible.
The sole judging criterion is design excellence. The jury is empowered to determine the extent to which design excellence is informed by aesthetic, functional, contextual, sustainability, social or other characteristics. The jury may elect to honor projects by building type or other categories or may choose to make no such distinctions.
Structures or buildings (or groups of either) of any size and any project type (including rehabs, interior architecture, monuments, etc.) completed after January 1, 2005 are eligible.
Associate AIA members and other unlicensed architecture graduates may submit projects that do not require the stamp of a licensed professional. Projects that have been honored in this program in past years and work by the design professionals serving as jurors this year (or by their firms) are ineligible.
The nonrefundable fee for the first submission is $150 for Massachusetts AIA members; $250 for all others. The fee for each additional submission by the same architect or firm is $100 for Massachusetts AIA members and $165 for all others.
