The UK Chapter of the American Institute of Architects held its Annual Excellence in Design Awards Ceremony, following a convivial reception in the Courtyard at the Wallace Collection on Tuesday evening, 17th April. The Goodison Lecture Theatre was at capacity for the presentation of four AIA UK Excellence in Design Awards, five Design Commendations and two Noel Hill Student Travel Awards.
The AIA UK Awards Competition attracted the largest number of submissions in the eighteen year history of the programme, and the Jury was unanimous in it’s view that the entries represented a remarkable level of quality and a wide range of project typologies.
