Must-See Kentucky Architecture

Fall Foliage Blue Heron

Based on a tally of member votes, AIA Kentucky compiled a list of 25 must-see Kentucky buildings, which was published online in USA Today Travel in March 2017. Check out the list here to see how many you have been to, and how many you still need to visit! (Click Fullscreen mode for best viewing.)

In 2013, in partnership with Kentucky Educational Television (KET), AIA Kentucky participated in a similar effort to recognize and celebrate Kentucky Architecture that has influenced the way Kentuckians live, work, and play. Kentuckians nominated over 170 significant, memorable and functional buildings of all sizes and styles, and the top 50 were chosen for an online competition. After 13,000 votes were cast by over 5,000 voters, Kentucky’s Top 10 Favorite Architecture were identified! View the top 10 video here and see the winners listed below:
