Last night in Hollywood, the AIA Los Angeles Chapter celebrated the winners of their 2018 Design Awards, which recognize design excellence in built projects by AIA members from firms based in the L.A. area, as well as projects located in Los Angeles that were designed by any AIA member, regardless of their location. Awards were given in three categories: Honor, Merit, and Citation.
During Tuesday night's event, the AIA|LA also honored the winners of the Next LA awards program (unbuilt or in-progress commissions) and the COTE LA awards (achievements in sustainable design), as well as the 2018 AIA|LA Presidential Honorees (bestowed by AIA|LA President Tania Van Herle and the Board of Directors).
