Here are the 2017 AIA Arizona Design Award winners

Real Estate | 8 Dec, 2017 |

Rome wasn’t built in one day and neither were the projects, concepts and designs recognized at this year’s AIA Arizona Design Awards for excellence in architectural projects and practices under five categories: design, leadership, practice, performance and education. 

The goal is to honor exceptional work, both built and unbuilt, established practices of excellence, and nurture new values and activities that contribute to design and design appreciation. 

Each project entry is individually judged regardless of size or classification and awards are given based on three categories of distinction: honor, merit and citation (listed in order of importance).  

Awards for this year’s winners were presented on October 20 at the Phoenix Art Museum.
