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 gems that small firms typically do not submit to standard everything-is-eligible design awards programs.

This program is co-sponsored by BSA Small Practice Network and BSA Residential Design Committee.
