Design Awards

AIA Rochester is pleased to announce our 2019 Design Awards.  The Design Awards are an ongoing annual program established to encourage excellence in architectural design, to make the public more aware of our built environment, and to honor the owners, designers, and construction teams of successful projects.  This year, AIA Rochester is excited to extend our Awards program to encompass the synergistic work done by our colleagues at the IIDANY Chapter Rochester City Center.  Our 2019 Awards will be presented at a special Centennial-themed Design Awards Gala as part of our yearlong celebration to mark our 100 year anniversary as a professional organization of architects in Rochester.

Rochester Designers Unleashed: Ideas Competition

In collaboration with The Emerging Rochester Architects and colleagues at the IIDANY Chapter Rochester City Center, AIA Rochester is pleased to announce the 2019 Rochester Designers Unleashed: Architectural Ideas Competition. This competition is intended to showcase the talents of young designers in our community, test the limits of what is achievable in our built environment, and inspire new solutions to the design and development issues we currently face.

The Designers Unleashed competition follows the same timeline as the Design Awards: register by February 28 and submit your finalized submission by April 1.


Register for both the Design Awards and the Rochester Designers Unleashed competition here.
