Every year since the program’s inception, the AIANY Design Awards have celebrated outstanding architectural design by AIANY members and New York-based architects, as well as recognizing local work by architects from around the world. Awards are given in four categories—Architecture, Interiors, Projects, and Urban Design—as reviewed by the seven-person jury who establish criteria, evaluate excellence, and determine the awards given for Honor and Merit designations. This year, Oculus guest editor Alan Brake will serve as moderator when the jury convenes in the coming weeks.
Honor and Merit winners will be revealed at the Design Awards Jury Symposium on March 6, 2017, and further celebrated at the Honors and Awards Luncheon on April 21, 2017.
