AIA New York’s annual Design Awards program recognizes outstanding architectural design by AIANY members and New York City-based architects and work in New York City by architects from around the world. The purpose of the awards program is to honor the architects, clients, and consultants who have achieved design excellence. Awards are given in four categories: Architecture, Interiors, Projects, Urban Design. All categories were reviewed by the eight-person jury who establish criteria, evaluate excellence, and determine the awards given for Honor and Merit.
