The Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida) celebrated inspiring work at the annual AIA Florida Design & Honor Awards on July 30 at The Breakers in Palm Beach.
The Design Awards were selected by a jury of experts based in Barcelona, Spain, continuing a tradition of AIA Florida architects competing on a global stage. The Design Awards encourage excellence in architecture, elevate public consciousness of good design, and recognize those architects whose work enriches our built environment. The Honor Awards recognize the work of members who embody the ideals of the American Institute of Architects both professionally and in their community.
“Once again, architects from AIA Florida, AIA Puerto Rico and AIA Virgin Islands have shown the high caliber of work that we do here,” said AIA Florida President Lourdes Solera, FAIA. “We hope the examples of work and the architects we featured will empower and inspire other members to achieve even more.”
