The American Institute of Architects Idaho (AIA Idaho) is pleased to announce the 2018 Idaho Design Awards opening May 1, 2018.
American Institute of Architects Design Awards is the design community’s best and highest celebration of great design and the people who create it. AIA Idaho hosts this bi-annual award program to honor design excellence throughout Idaho. AIA design awards program celebrates the best contemporary architecture regardless of budget, size, style, or type. These stunning projects show the world the range of outstanding work Idaho architects create and highlight the many ways buildings and spaces can improve our lives. By honoring the outstanding achievements of our peers, we are reminded that all building-industry professionals have the opportunity to positively affect their communities and the way we live.
The architectural design awards is a juried process. The independent jury panel evaluates entries based on how successfully projects have met their individual requirements. Entries are judged individually—not in competition with each other. All projects must demonstrate design achievement, including a sense of place and purpose, of ecology and environmental sustainability, and of history.

We request that you DO NOT provide old Sweets Catalogs, Building Product or Building Trade Magazines, etc… Gladly accepted are Notable Architects books, History books, Green Architecture books, your Firm’s Portfolios, Building Type books, (ie…Northwest Homes) Architecture Record, Dwell, or any print media that can fire-up the imaginations of high school students.
