The eminent juries convened for the AIA New York Chapter’s Design Awards announced the thirty-four winning projects at a symposium on March 1 evening at the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place. The thirty-four selected projects and the architecture firms behind them – many of whom were on hand for the event – represented exceptional work by AIA New York members in four categories: interiors, architecture, unbuilt work, and new for 2010, urban design. Each winning project, granted either an “honor” or “merit” award, was chosen for its exemplary originality. The criteria used by the juries included design quality, program resolution, innovation, thoughtfulness and technique. Jurors included San Diego professor Teddy Cruz and Los Angeles luminary Craig Hodgetts, FAIA, and Canadian architects Brigette Shim, Hon. FAIA, and Gilles Saucier. There were 425 entries in four categories, including close to two hundred submissions in the architecture category alone. Complete list of winners after the break.
