Design Awards

AIA San Francisco 2015 Design Awards

Recognizing achievement in a broad range of architectural work by members and nonmembers, AIA San Francisco’s Design Awards program celebrates the best in architecture, design, and sustainability in the Bay Area. This year, the Design Awards program has been restructured into 3 categories and 3 concentrations. By introducing concentrations we aim to give special acknowledgement to projects that further encompass the values of good design within the context of historic preservation, urban design, and social responsibility.

With this new format we hope to demonstrate that all of these disciplines explored collectively, rather than independently, strengthen the overall power and scope of architecture to help shape the built environment and enrich the human spirit.

In recognition of the importance of sustainable design, AIASF instituted a separate award category for energy and sustainability in 2003. In the last 12 years, the profession as a whole has transformed the way it designs, builds, and maintains buildings. The 2015 Design Awards program will incorporate the fulfillment of sustainable design principles into all categories. Sponsored by PG&E Pacific Energy Center.
