Perform Transform: 2008 Honor Awards


Online sales are closed, but tickets are still available at the door prior to the event.


What do you think of when you imagine ‘great architecture’? Grand staircases? Soaring rooftops? Perhaps something you might find in a glossy magazine? What about energy efficiency, the building’s connection to the community, or even architecture’s ability to transform the world we live in? Through the Honor Awards program, AIA Seattle explores what great architecture really means and expand the dialogue and diversity of architectural achievements, values and standards of excellence.

The theme of this year’s honor awards – perform/transform – recognizes the challenges and opportunities inherent in our work as this new century unfolds. Our work must perform technically, aesthetically and humanistically. Our practice must transform itself in response. This year’s awards program explores this transformation and celebrates excellent performance. Review of entries will culminate in a presentation by jury members at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle on Monday evening, November 3.

The acceleration of what we know and how we know it, what we do and how we do it, has altered our practice in profound ways. This year’s program aims to expand the dialogue about the diversity of architectural achievements, values, and standards of excellence. Join in the discussion by submitting the breadth of your best work.
