2022 AIA Awards - Interior Architecture
The 2022 Interior Architecture program celebrates the most innovative and spectacular interior spaces. Impressive building interiors make their mark on the cities, places, and spaces where we live and work.
Amherst College New Science Center
Meticulous craft, layered transparency, and academic connectivity are the hallmarks of Amherst College’s new science center.
Chicago Architecture Center
The new home for the Chicago Architecture Center, formerly known as the Chicago Architecture Foundation, was carved into an underused retail and exterior space at downtown Chicago’s Illinois Center.
Duke University, Rubenstein Arts Center
Nicknamed The Ruby, the new Rubenstein Arts Center at Duke University reinvents the role of the arts within a research university.
Geneva Car Barn & Powerhouse
Through adaptive reuse, the dilapidated Geneva Car Barn and Powerhouse in San Francisco now lives on as a cultural hub that highlights the dynamic interplay between new and old. Initially built in 1901 as the home for the city’s first electric railway, the building served its original purpose until 1989, when it was damaged during the Loma Prieta earthquake and subsequently abandoned. The revitalized buildings now stand ready to serve the community as a new arts event space while honoring their past uses.
Pennsylvania State University Recital Hall
This project, the first to emerge from Pennsylvania State University's College of Arts and Architecture master plan, replaces an outdated recital hall at the core of the university's School of Music.
Richardson Olmsted Campus
This project radically transformed the central portion of Buffalo’s National Historic Landmark Richardson Olmsted Campus into a boutique hotel.
Two Union Square Repositioning
Now 30 years old, Two Union Square remains a unique and significant icon in Seattle’s skyline. This project addresses the rapidly evolving needs of the city’s most innovative commercial tenants and the future of work by repositioning all of the building’s public spaces. Boldly current and reflective of complex fabrication techniques, the spaces are now centered on the human experience and are ready to support the city’s meteoric growth as a high-tech hub.
