Structures or buildings of all project types built anywhere in the world by design firms located in Massachusetts may be submitted. Design professionals anywhere in the world may submit projects built in Massachusetts.
The sole judging criterion is design excellence. The jury is empowered to determine the extent to which design excellence is defined by aesthetic, functional, contextual, sustainability, social or other characteristics. We invite submissions of those small gems that small firms typically do not submit to standard everything-is-eligible design awards programs.
This program is co-sponsored by S+H Construction.
Eligible firms are those with 10 or fewer full-time employees in all categories (not just designers).
Eligible projects must have been completed after January 1, 2006 and will be considered in three categories: Category One, projects less than 1,000 square feet or less than $750,000 in construction costs; Category Two, projects less than 2,500 square feet in size or less than $1.5 million in construction costs; Category Three, projects less than 5,000 square feet in size or less than $3 million in construction costs; and Category Four, projects more than 5,000 square feet in size or more than $3 million in construction costs.
Associate AIA members and other unlicensed design professionals, including interior architects or interior designers, 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 not eligible.
The nonrefundable fee for the first submission is $75 for Massachusetts AIA members and $125 for all others. The fee for each additional submission by the same architect or firm is $50 for Massachusetts AIA members and $85 for all others. There is no limit on submissions.
