Whether you have recently launched a practice or have a long-established firm, the AIA|LA Residential Architecture Awards is an inclusive program that invites work at all scales.

Projects will remain in the category they were submitted in, and be compared to projects of like scale.

The RAA showcases home design located in the greater Los Angeles area by any qualified AIA member, and AIA|LA members’ work in the typology completed in any location. 


Los Angeles has always been a dynamic incubator for dazzling residential architecture, a West Coast point lighting up the design’s globe. The AIA|LA Residential Architecture Awards (RAA) returns focus to these contributions by celebrating design we live in today as part of its prestigious awards program.
