      For immediate release:
      Washington, D.C. – February 17, 2011 –
      The American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced the 11 recipients of the 2011 AIA Young Architects Award. Young Architects are defined as professionals who have been licensed 10 years or fewer regardless of their age. This award honors individuals who have shown exceptional leadership and made significant contributions to the profession early in their careers. The Young Architects Award will be presented to the recipients at the AIA 2011 National Convention and Design Exposition in New Orleans.

      Jack Baumann, AIA

      Baumann promotes architecture as more than just creating physical buildings, but creating relationships with his colleagues, his clients, and his peers, looking toward the future from the impact he makes today.

      Sara Beardsley, AIA

      In explaining her architectural philosophy, Sara likens buildings to "living, functioning machines." Sara's skills will become increasingly prevalent in the new century as energy usage becomes more of a factor in design and engineering.

      Gail Peter Borden, AIA

      Balanced with this tremendous teaching career, Borden has focused his firm's work with a special eye towards the American suburban landscape, looking at the home through program, materiality, economic/social infrastructures, and technology.

      Steven Dwyer, AIA

      As Dwyer has progressed through his career, he increasingly views his contributions as an architect and citizen as indistinguishable from his efforts to improve the lives of both his clients and his community.

      Sanford E. Garner, AIA

      In addition to his award-winning professional practice, Garner has maintained a strong commitment to community service and development through his involvement with local and regional advisory councils and boards.

      Christopher Herr, AIA

      Herr holds important the idea of helping and fostering the creativity of young people who are interested in the power of architecture. As a result, his firm is involved in high school intern programs, job shadow programs, and strong intern mentoring.

      Jennifer T. Knudsen, AIA

      Knudsen's contributions to the profession are her unequaled leadership, knowledge, and continued advancement of an architecture enhanced by the interactive use of the Building Information Model in a team environment.

      Kiel Moe, AIA

      Moe's research and related publications are directed towards the advancement of more ecologically, economically, and professionally sustainable modes of practice.

      Amy Slattery, AIA

      Slattery is known for her energy, daily rigor, and ability to see and coordinate many issues concurrently. A recognized leader amongst her peers, Amy was named Emerging Professional of the Year by AIA Kansas City in 2008.

      Sean Stadler, AIA

      From his leadership roles in professional organizations to redefining the standard of design leadership at his firm, Stadler's commitment has helped to increase the potential for the industry's young leaders and the next generation of design excellence.

      Thomas J. Trenolone, AIA

      Trenolone and his teams have garnered over 50 awards for design excellence, and he has authored or been featured in over 40 published articles on architecture and design.
