Honor Awards for Design Excellence
Background: Architects and the built environment strive to exemplify design excellence through engaging, listening, and questioning. As architects and designers, we leverage the power of design to create innovative and new design ideas that address issues of sustainability and social equity.
Eligibility: This award recognizes projects of new construction or rehabilitation of any type or scale that set the bar for future innovation.
