Sticks & Stones

In the 54th annual AIA Seattle Honor Awards, program, a panel of critical observers reviewed some 175 entries from Washington design professionals, offering remarks and announcing awards Monday evening November 7, 2005 before an enthusiastic assembly of some 800 friends and fans of architecture, at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle.

A second jury reviewed 17 entries for this year's Design Challenge: A Place of Remembrance, a program intended to generate visions for memorializing those who die homeless in our communities, and to help bring about an end to homelessness: Steve Badanes Associate AIA, Howard S. Wright Professor of Architecture at the University of Washington and a founder of the firm Jersey Devil; and landscape architect Shannon Nichol ASLA, of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol, with offices in Seattle and London.

From among recently-built projects, the jury selected seven projects for award, and also commented on overall characteristics of the work submitted. The single Honor Award cites a residential design, the two Awards of Merit recognize expressions of corporate and civic function, and the four Commendations note achievement in community service facilities. The Design Challenge jury selected one entry to receive a Citation. Click here to review jury comments and project credits.

According to Honor Awards Committee Chair Jon Taylor AIA, a guiding notion for this year's design consideration derives from Lewis Mumford's 1924 work Sticks & Stones, A Study of American Architecture and Civilization. In a journey through the history of American architecture from pre-colonial times to the turn of the 20th century, Mumford berates "architecture for photographers" that rarely relates to the people occupying it.

"We asked the jury to examine our work and thought in the context of experiments and innovations that extend the value of architecture to both its users and to society," notes Jon Taylor. "We appreciate their insights, and the annual opportunity to examine the quality of our work both in individual projects and their combined effect on the landscape of our communities.

AIA Seattle Members and friends celebrated with Honor Award recipients at the Holiday Party December 7.
