The American Institute of Architects celebrates outstanding architectural work that elevates the quality of architecture practice; sets standards against which all architects can measure performance; and informs the public of its breadth and value.
For more than 60 years, the Institute Honor Awards have recognized projects of all sizes, budgets, styles, and building types—from public to residential, from large firms to sole practitioners.
The 2013 Institute Honor Awards program is now accepting online entries of projects that have been
- completed since January 1, 2006 (except for Regional & Urban Design projects, which may be incomplete, and the Twenty-five Year Award, which will honor projects completed 1978–1988)
- designed by an architect licensed in the United States or in one of its territories at the time of the project’s completion
- submitted by an architect who was a member of the design team, whether or not serving as the head of the team
