Design Awards


2024 submissions will open in the spring.

The AIA Austin Design Awards program recognizes outstanding architectural projects completed by AIA Austin members. Winning work spans a diverse spectrum of project sizes, types, locations, and clients. Each year, an invited jury of respected design professionals reviews submissions and selects exceptional projects. Compelling submissions are commended for their architectural design, technical ability, environmental response, and/or social impact. Innovation is recognized at multiple scales, from urban strategies to detail resolution. The program highlights the importance of sustainable design—recognizing the power of design to contribute solutions that address the most significant needs of our time.

Each year, the AIA Austin Design Awards Committee issues a call for entries to recognize the very best of Austin architecture. Juried by a group of architects from around the United States, recipients are revealed live at our annual Awards Celebration.

The 2023 Design Awards were bestowed on May 17, 2023 at Austin PBS.
