2008 Annual Design Awards Competition

Madison (May 1, 2008) — Ten building projects have been recognized for excellence in architectural design by the 2008 Design Awards program of AIA Wisconsin, the state society of The American Institute of Architects (AIA).


This year's award-winning architecture reflects a diverse mix of projects, including a waterfront museum, an entertainment destination, private residences, a housing development, a university research facility, an interpretive museum exhibit, a place of worship in the Northwoods and a commercial office building.

These projects are honored for their creative, innovative and environmentally sensitive design solutions. The common thread among all ten projects is that they were designed by architect members of AIA Wisconsin.

A jury of nationally distinguished architects from outside Wisconsin selected the award-winning projects. Members of the 2008 Design Awards jury were: Ronnette Riley, FAIA, New York; Kenneth Luker, AIA, North Carolina; and Paul Mankins, FAIA, Iowa .

“The quality of the projects was impressive; and some will be recognized at the national level,” according to this year's awards jury. “There are firms doing a lot of really good work, which raises the bar very high for the entire state. Wisconsin should feel proud about that.”
