AIA Maryland Celebrates Excellence in Design at Annual Awards Celebration

Members and their clients, architectural students and professors, along with their colleagues gathered on September 12th at the new John and Frances Angelos Law Center in Baltimore to recognize the outstanding architectural achievements of AIA members and architectural students. The 17 award-winning projects were selected from a field of 105 professional entries submitted by 43 firms representing AIA members across Maryland, Virginia and DC. Thirty-four submissions were received in the student awards programs. Six graduate and undergraduate students from Morgan State University and University of Maryland were recognized for award. The jury bestowed five additional awards to Anne Arundel Community College and Montgomery College students in the Maryland Community College Architectural Projects competition, now in its fourth year. Dan Bailey, AIA, President, presented the awards to the students, architects, building owners, and general contractors for their outstanding design. AIA Maryland wishes to thank all participants for their contributions to this annual program.
