Design Awards

The Design Awards Committee organizes the annual AIA|LA Design Awards Program and supports the production of the annual Design Awards Party & Ceremony. The Design Awards recognizes excellence in architecture and design as submitted by AIA members for projects either in the Los Angeles area or designed by members of the LA Chapter anywhere.

An engaged group of professionals, the Design Awards committee meets regularly from February through October to review and generate the annual Call for Entry, discuss and select the juries, organize jury day, conceptualize and install the program’s exhibition and provide input in regard to the production of the awards ceremony in October.
