Campus and Urban Planning Design Awards

Submissions for Campus and Urban Planning Design Awards closed on September 9, 2022 at 11:59 PM.

Description: The Campus and Urban Planning category encompasses architecture’s true value and promise to communities. Campus and urban planning design share increasingly similar goals. They strive to be more inclusive, center economic development, and include community voices in the planning process. The best planning methods consider the entire built environment, local culture, and available resources.

Eligibility: Projects may be submitted in one of two categories: Urban Design, for projects that focus on a proposed arrangement of buildings, landscapes, and infrastructural components, and Campus Planning, for projects sponsored by an institution that shape their physical environment to reflect its priorities.

Project submissions criteria include a robust approach to sustainability and equity, as well as addressing environmental, social, and economic factors. Projects that contain attributes which successfully reduced the carbon footprint of the architecture, construction, or usage, should make every attempt to highlight those aspects within their entry submission.

Submission fees: All submission fees are non-refundable

  • Massachusetts AIA firm members pay $150 for their first submission
    • $100 for subsequent submissions per category.
  • Nonmembers pay $250 for their first submission
    • $200 for subsequent submissions per category
