About the Design Awards Program
Every two years since 1968, the AIA Long Beach / South Bay Chapter has celebrated outstanding architecture through its Biennial Design Awards Program. Our Design Awards Program recognizes achievements for a broad range of architectural works that elevate the general quality of architectural practice, establish a standard of excellence against which all architects can measure performance, and inform the public of the breath and value of architectural practice. To achieve these goals, the Design Awards Program seeks to recognize both Architecture and Interior Design.
This year to emphasize the important role that the built environment can play in mitigating the effects of climate change our chapter’s Committee on the Environment (COTE) will also recognize projects that successfully integrate design excellence with environmental performance.
Also this year, to recognize the importance of the next generation of designers, the AIA Long Beach / South Bay Design Award Committee would like to introduce a category for student designs.
The jury reviews the entries and selects projects for Honor, Merit or Citation award recognition. The jury shall has the sole authority to determine which and how many awards are justified in each category. Each entry is considered individually and is judged on the success with which it has met its individual requirements — not in competition with other entries. Jury decisions will be based solely on the materials submitted. The jury’s decisions shall be final and not subject to review. No minimum or maximum number of awards has been established.
