YOU ARE INVITED to the 2012 AIA Seattle Honor Awards for Washington Architecture.
In this period of exploration and opportunity, the architectural and design community is branching out beyond the traditional bounds of practice and specialization. In addition to built architectural work, we have expanded the submittal categories to allow for a breadth of work at all scales to incorporate new directions in art, objects, furniture, fabrications, speculative work, digital environments, software, landscape, film... This year, we received over 180 entries!
On Nov 5, join us for this lively discussion with a distinguished jury and reveal what you've been building, thinking, and making.
