2009 Annual Design Awards Competition

Madison (May 21, 2009) — Seven building projects have been recognized for excellence in architectural design by the 2009 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 sushi restaurant, a condo development welcome center, private residences, a hospital, a transportation center and a national headquarters building.

These projects are honored for their creative, contemporary, innovative and environmentally sensitive design solutions. The common thread among all seven 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 2009 Design Awards jury were Kathy Achelpohl, AIA Kansas City, Mo.; Stephen Knowles, AIA Minneapolis; and Kevin Rice, AIA, New York.

“The projects selected for recognition add to the voice of Wisconsin,” according to this year's awards jury. “Wisconsin architects should be proud that these are rising to the surface.”
