This award, recognizing architectural design of enduring significance, is conferred on a project that has stood the test of time for 25 to 35 years. The project must have been designed by an architect licensed in the United States at the time of the project's completion. AIA members, AIA components, and knowledge communities are urged to submit projects completed between 1978 and 1988 that have contributed meaningfully to American life and architecture.
The deadline for the 2013 program has passed.
The 2014 information will be posted in the spring of 2013. Until that time we encourage you to use the Twenty-five Year Award Walk Through as a guideline.
• Any AIA member, group of members, component, or Knowledge Community may nominate a project for the Twenty-five Year Award.
• The award is open to architectural projects of all classifications and may be one building or a related group of buildings forming a single project.
• The project must be standing in a substantially completed form and in good condition.
• The project should still carry out the original program. Change of use is permitted when it has not basically altered original intent.
• The project must have excellence in function—in the distinguished execution of its original program and in the creative aspects of its statement by today's standards. Building and site together should be examined. Any alteration to the immediate context shall be taken into consideration.
•Nominations previously submitted may be resubmitted provided they still meet the stipulated date of substantial completion of the original project.
