AIA|LA is Proud to Announce the 2012 Presidential Honorees and Design Awards Save the Date!
Educators, civic leaders, media personalities, writers and of course, architects are some of the driving forces that push the architectural profession forward. AIA Los Angeles (AIA|LA) recognizes the community efforts needed to help architects of all genres succeed in the public eye. Which is why the 2012 Presidential Board Honorees come from a slew of fields and backgrounds that help to support architectural initiatives in Los Angeles.
The Presidential Awards recognize select individuals that take leadership roles in their profession. AIA|LA President, Stuart Magruder, AIA, stated, "as with last year's Presidential Awards process - the first with full Board input - we as a Board did a thorough evaluation and discussion, in consultation with several prominent practitioners, academics, and journalists, have awarded the 2012 Presidential Awards."
