The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is recognizing 11 exceptional designs with its 2018 Small Project Awards. Complete details for each of the awarded projects can be reviewed on AIA’s website.
Now in its 15th year, the AIA Small Project Awards program—established by The Small Project Practitioners (SPP)—recognizes small-project practitioners for the high quality of their work. The program also aims at raising awareness about the value and design excellence that architects can bring to projects, no matter their size or scope. Award recipients are categorized in three groups:
- Category 1 could include small project construction, an architectural object, work of environmental art or an architectural design element that cost up to $150,000 in construction.
- Category 2 could include small project construction that could cost up to $1,500,000 in construction.
- Category 3 could include small project construction, an architectural object, work of environmental art or an architectural design that is under 5,000 square feet.
