The 2018 AIA Northwest and Pacific Region (NW+PR) Design Awards celebrate the best architectural designs available from AIA Members in the NW+PR. These projects represent the finest standards in sustainability, innovation, building performance, and overall integration with client and surrounding community.
Built submissions must have been completed after August 1, 2013 and must be designed by members of chapters within the AIA Northwest & Pacific Region or by AIA members submitting projects located within the Region. The AIA NW+PR includes the states of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Hawaii and Guam/Micronesia. Projects do not have to have previously received a design award from a local component to enter the NW+PR Design Awards.
For AIA NW+PR members
, the size and location of a project will in no way limit its eligibility. For AIA members located outside of the NW+PR
, only projects located with the Region will be considered. Members may separately submit as many projects for consideration as they wish. For projects in which an AIA member has joint ventured or associated with a design consultant, the member must be the Architect-of-Record. Projects must be submitted in the name of the Architect-of-Record. If that firm has been dissolved or its name has been changed, an individual or successor firm may enter projects in the name of the firm in effect at the time the project was executed. Where responsibility for a project is shared, all participants who substantially contributed to the work must be appropriately credited.
Projects that have won AIA NW+PR Design Awards in the past are not eligible. All other projects may be resubmitted if they fall within the eligibility timeline.
Submissions should clearly demonstrate process and accomplishment through a combination of text, diagrams, drawings, photographs and other graphic materials and address the issues outlined in the Jury Criteria. Projects should fall within the following two categories:
- Commercial/Institutional Project
These projects include public and private developments of a commercial or institutional nature. K-12 and higher education, manufacturing, retail, and utilities are included alongside urban planning & design projects.
- Residential Project
