Awards

    
In an effort to recognize excellence in design, AIA Iowa offers several award programs. For each award a jury of respected professionals from within the architecture and design communities meet to recognize the finest from within our state. The AIA Iowa Design Award Programs are open to all members of AIA Iowa. 

 

You can learn more about all of our awards here. Complete guidelines will be shared within each award's call for entries. Past award winning projects can be found at IowaArchitecture.org
