The 2022 IDEAS² Awards open on May 19, 2021! The deadline is September 8, 2021.
NEW FOR 2022: LIGHTS, CAMERA, INNOVATION!
We’re putting American steel innovation in the spotlight--live on YouTube!
This year, a panel of judges will select three finalists in each category. In December, those three finalists will present their masterpieces to the judges, live, and we’ll stream it on YouTube for the world to see! The big announcement will be a major part of NASCC: The Steel Conference in Denver (March 23-25), and all the finalists will be invited to give an encore of their final presentations during the conference.
The winners will also be featured in the May 2022 issue of Modern Steel Construction magazine. In addition to substantial press support and publicity through AISC’s own print and online media, winning teams have the unique opportunity to present their projects to the AEC community during special webinars or live events throughout the year.
WHAT ARE THE IDEAS² AWARDS?
Sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction, the Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel (IDEAS²) Award program recognizes projects that illustrate the exciting possibilities of building with structural steel. The IDEAS² awards showcase the innovative use of structural steel in:
- the accomplishment of the structure's program
- the expression of architectural intent
- the application of innovative design approaches to the structural system
- leveraging productivity-enhancing construction methods
AISC’s award programs have celebrated landmark structures built with structural steel since 1960. These architectural icons span generations and stand the test of time. AISC recognizes and promotes these projects in recognition of their impact in terms of structural innovation, advances in safety, benefit to the local community, and environmental consciousness.
While many of the winners are landmark structures, the awards program also honors smaller, less well-known projects. What all of the winners share is a commitment to innovation and imaginative design!
