AIA Austin Gives its Annual Awards


The Austin chapter of the American Institute of Architects gave its annual awards May 10 at the new Austin Central Library.

Jurors were Billie Faircloth, AIA, Claudia Harari, Andrew Klare, and Roberto de Leon, FAIA.

“This year’s jurors were incredibly thoughtful and rigorous,” says AIA Austin Executive Director Ingrid Spencer. “They were interested in projects that elevated a building type or sent a message that design could solve problems, be functional, and still be beautiful.

Images of the award-winning projects will be on exhibit through June 30 at the Central Library. Exhibit visitors will be able to vote for the People’s Choice Award.

The library itself received a Sustainability Commendation award for its architects, Lake | Flato.
