2013 Honor Awards Program
2013 Call for Entries Deadline: June 10, 2013 - Register Entries Here.
The Honor Awards Program of AIA Kentucky, the Kentucky Society of Architects, seeks to honor and bring to public attention distinctive works of architecture created by Kentucky AIA Architect Members. For over 49 years, the program has been dedicated to:
- recognizing and applauding works of architecture exhibiting design excellence, and
- promoting public awareness and appreciation of the diversity, quality and scope of Kentucky architecture.
The Kentucky Society's "Honor Award for Achievement of Excellence in Architectural Design" is the highest professional honor bestowed upon a Kentucky architect by his or her peers, and it distinguishes the architect as one who is dedicated to making architecture the best it can be.
An entry must be a work of architecture completed after January 1, 2003 and prior to June 1, 2013 and may be:
- a building
- a complex of buildings forming a single project
- a park or plaza
- a mall
- a new interior design project
Eligible projects include:
- any project built anywhere in the world designed by a Kentucky AIA Architect Member, or
- any project built in Kentucky and designed by any AIA Architect Member licensed to practice in Kentucky at the time of the project's completion.
The entry is to be submitted by the architect. Any entry submitted in a previous AIA Kentucky Honor Awards Program and not accorded recognition may be entered again in the current year program, provided that the project was completed within the prescribed dates.
The Honor Awards Program Chairman is responsible for assembling an unbiased jury of professionals from outside the state of Kentucky. The jury is directed to evaluate each project based on the success with which the project met its own individual requirements. Entries are weighed individually, not in comparison with one another, and the jury is directed to select as many or as few projects as it determined to be worthy of recognition. The jury considers energy efficiency and accessibility to persons with disabilities, as well as functional utility, economy, environmental harmony and attention to the social concerns of the profession.
