The AIA Seattle chapter recognized nineteen projects for design excellence from across the state of Washington. An extensive collection of 140 submittals were reviewed, resulting in the selection of ten institutional, seven residential, and two commercial projects. The general theme showed an integration of sustainability into architectural work, stating that the “old discussion of green design in opposition to good design argument is history.”

Nancy Levinson, Editor of Places/Design Observer, moderated the packed event at Benaroya Hall. The competition was juried by Marlon Blackwell FAIA (University of Arkansas), Martin Felsen AIA (Chicago) and Jennifer Yoos (Minneapolis). Co-Chairs were Wendy Pautz AIA of LMN Architects and Guy Michaelsen ASLA of the Berger Partnership.
