2022 Design Awards Gala
AIA East Bay recognizes outstanding achievements in architecture and design. This prestigious competition is designed to recognize the contributions of teams of architects, contractors, and developers in creating and implementing outstanding building projects.
This honor is given to architects and firms for projects that demonstrate exemplary design skill of formal, functional and technical requirements, including ecological and environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and a strong sense of place.
This Years Theme
“Beyond: Celebrating design that honors the seen and the unseen.”
The need for specialization tends to segment architects and projects into “disciplines” or “market sectors.” Our goal is to expand beyond these boundaries to create productive discourse between project types and scales.
Excellent design creates ripple effects far beyond the project itself. A small space may influence a global discussion, and a single structure may facilitate healing in a community. For these reasons, we have chosen to replace our traditional project categories with these simple categories of small, medium, large, unbuilt, and student work.
