The AIA has a long tradition of recognizing individuals,organizations, and projects for exemplifying the very best in architecture. The AIA believes that awards programs should be carefully structured so that selection and recognition of honorees serves two distinct purposes: one directed to the profession, and the other to the public. By focusing attention on activity within the profession, the general quality of architectural practice is elevated. By informing the public on the breadth and value of architectural practice, the entire profession is held in higher esteem.

AIA Charleston achieves this purpose by establishing the following awards:
Honor and Merit Design Awards
Recognizing design excellence

Unbuilt Project Awards
Unbuilt architectural designs of any project type, including purely theoretical projects, competition entries, and unbuilt client-sponsored projects

This year, AIA Charleston is holding a local chapter awards program based on these principles. The following information provides members with information on these awards. We encourage your participation, and look forward to celebrating an evening of design excellence on Saturday, November 16, 2013 at Memminger Auditorium with Curt Fentress, FAIA, RIBA, as the jury chair and keynote speaker.

Jennifer Charzewski, AIA
2013 Design Awards Program Chair
