    AIA 2001 Honor Awards


    Anderson continues: "If there is a trend to be found among this year's winners, it is in the high number of projects that improve the quality of life for neighborhoods, communities, and the citizens who inhabit them." A complete list of winners is given below.

    Words from the Juries

    Each of the three categories, architecture, interiors, and urban design, had its own jury of distinguished American design and planning professionals.

    John Belle, FAIA, chaired the architecture jury. He explains that his group sought to illustrate that design excellence is our profession's goal for all citizens in all walks of life. "The wide range of projects submitted—in almost every conceivable building type—clearly demonstrates that good design is not just for a fortunate few," he said."

    Interiors jury chair Barbara A. Hillier, AIA, commented: "The projects we chose reflect the most artful and technologically sophisticated of all the submissions. Each of them expressed a clear idea, a rigor expressed as consistency in formal application of the idea, original thought, and superb execution."

    "The urban design projects submitted all reflect what livable communities can really be," said Amy Weinstein, FAIA, chair of the regional and urban design jury. "They each do a masterful job of addressing infrastructure, growth issues, and street life, and integrating the adjoining neighborhoods and landscape."

    The awards will be presented May 19 at the 2001 AIA National Convention and Expo in Denver.
