From a wall made of beer bottles to a traveling prayer room that evokes a covered wagon, the recipients of the AIA’s 2009 Small Project Awards run the gamut.
The 20 winners were announced in May and recognized at the association’s annual convention in San Francisco. Now in its fifth year, the awards program is divided into three categories: objects (up to $50,000 construction budget); structures (up to $500,000 construction budget); and “accessible” residential designs.
The jury included: Louis Smith (moderator), AIA, Microtecture; Kenneth Workman, AIA, RWA Architects; Sanford Steinberg, AIA, Steinberg Design Collaborative; Eric McRoberts, AIA, RLPS; Katherine Austin, AIA; and Sherry Ahrentzen, Assoc. AIA, Arizona State University.
