Submissions are open! 2021 AIA Seattle Honor Awards for Washington Architecture

Reconnect and broaden conversations about resilience in design. On behalf of the Honor Awards Committee, we look forward to celebrating you in person with a renewed sense of urgency to undertake the grand social, environmental, and economic challenges we are facing.

While this has been a difficult year, it has also been a time for reflection. Our evolving public health crises continued critical reckonings with systemic racism, and rapidly changing environments are intrinsically linked. Yet we remain optimistic in the innovations design can contribute, and believe in AIA Seattle’s vision for a culture of design that fosters equitable, resilient, and thriving communities.

You play a vital role in showcasing the design leadership in our region, and we encourage you to share your work by submitting to AIA Seattle’s 2021 Honor Awards for Washington Architecture before the deadline on September 29. It’s a new year, a new jury, and a transition back to in-person celebrations!

If you have never submitted before or your project has not yet been recognized, this is your moment to reconnect and contribute to broadening conversations about resilience in design. Download the 2021 Call for Submissions + Guidelines.
