MTFA Architecture will be presented with the T. David Fitz-Gibbon Virginia Architecture Firm Award at the Visions for Architecture gala on Friday, Nov. 9, 2018, at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Sometimes called the “firm award,” it is the highest honor bestowed by AIA Virginia to a Virginia-based architecture firm. It recognizes a firm that has consistently produced distinguished architecture for at least 10 years.
For 25 years, MTFA has had a profound impact on the architectural profession by thoughtfully shaping people’s lives through design excellence throughout Virginia and beyond. Members of the firm are exemplary citizen architects and have led the American Institute of Architects with two presidents of AIA Northern Virginia, a president of AIA Virginia, a board member of the Branch Museum, and numerous AIA committee founders and chairs.
Consistency of philosophy and mission has profoundly shaped the architectural story of each of their employees and clients. They have impacted culture, commerce and community, and in doing so have made Virginia and the world a more meaningful place. They have been mentors to students inside and outside the office with amazing dedication and new programs like the Annual Inter-School Design Competition for architecture students.
Their history, design awards and publications testify to the enormous potential for using the AIA, their clients and the community as a vehicle to promote connections that reinforce tomorrow’s leadership and inspire the creation of a better built environment.
