The 2017 Civic Design Awards celebrates the best examples of what can be realized when architects and civic clients work together to achieve quality design. AIA Washington awards these clients and the architects who have demonstrated an appreciation for the excellent work done by AIA Members in the Washington Council. These projects represent the finest standards in innovation, sustainability, building performance, and overall integration with the client and surrounding community.

Because this year’s Civic Design Awards is being held in conjunction with the AIA Northwest & Pacific Region Design Awards, there is also a category for public projects designed by firms in the AIA Northwest & Pacific Region.  AIA Washington firms may enter the same project in the AIA Washington built category and the AIA Northwest & Pacific Region category.


The deadline to enter is 11:45pm on Friday, August 4, 2017. Once you fill out the intent to enter form you will receive a unique project code and link to finalize your project submission.
