The AIA Seattle Honor Awards for Washington Architecture is a nationally-recognized program that provides an important opportunity for the design community to share and celebrate its achievements, both among practitioners and with the community-at-large. The 70th Annual Honor Awards for Washington Architecture was held last week, and gave us all plenty to celebrate. Their first-ever virtual live event revealed and celebrated 20 award winners and the greater design community. Among the awardees were a sizable number of UW Architecture alumni, faculty, and PAC members. We are pleased and proud that this community maintains such strong ties with our department and its students.
A partial list of the UW community’s awardees can be found below, and the complete awards catalog is now available online at this link. (If you were among the awardees and we missed your name, give us a shout.)
Congratulations to all who were recognized for their stellar design work in our region!
