With the growth of new development and renovation in our boroughs over the past five years, our professional associations are excited to collaborate on this event tailored to professions of the built environment that we all share.
In its second annual celebration, the Brooklyn + Queens Design Awards (BQDA) was established to encourage excellence in architectural design, raising public awareness of the built environment and to honor the architects, owners & builders of significant projects. The AIA Brooklyn and AIA Queens Chapters now in collaboration with AIA Staten Island and AIA Bronx Chapters will honor and recognize the best architecture and professionals that Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and The Bronx can offer.

The Brooklyn + Queens Design Awards Program will recognize significant architectural and landscape projects that are in Brooklyn. Queens, Staten Island, and The Bronx since 2012. We are inviting architects to submit projects in various categories (residential, commercial, institutional, etc) which will be evaluated by a jury of architects who will select the award-winning projects. We also have a category for student projects as well as projects that were designed but unbuilt.
Entries are encouraged from design firms or teams of architects of any age or experience level, provided they are working under a licensed architect for all major categories. Unbuilt categories and student works do not require the work to be under a licensed architect.
