The AIA Austin Design Awards program recognizes outstanding architectural projects completed by AIA Austin members. Winning work spans a diverse spectrum of project sizes, types, locations, and clients. 
 
Each year, an invited jury of respected design professionals reviews submissions and selects exceptional projects. Compelling submissions are commended for their architectural design, technical ability, environmental response, and/or social impact. Innovation is recognized at multiple scales, from urban strategies to detail resolution. The program highlights the importance of sustainable design—recognizing the power of design to contribute solutions that address the most significant needs of our time.  
Learn about this year's esteemed jurors.

Winning projects will be recognized at the virtual Design Awards Celebration on May 20, 2021.
