Design Awards Gala

  • Twentieth Century Club 595 Delaware Avenue Buffalo, NY, 14202 United States (map)
2016 Design Awards Banner.jpg

Join us for an evening honoring local architects and their achievements as the Design Awards are presented to outstanding projects, both built and unbuilt that exemplify the best of quality, innovation, and collaboration in the profession. 

A jury of our peers from AIA Cincinnati is selecting the most creative solutions for recognition in a series of design categories.  All of the design entries will be exhibited during the event. 

AIA Buffalo/WNY will produce a formal Design Awards Publication featuring all Design Awards entries, exhibiting the talent and professional commitment that our members offer to the Buffalo and Western New York.  Copies of the publication will be available to all who attend the event and will be distributed throughout the community in the months to follow.

Dinner and Open Bar will be provided. Special food requirements (allergies, gluten-free) may be accommodated. Please contact us if you have specific needs.
