Annually since 1968, AIA New York State’s Annual Design Awards celebrate local, national and international projects that achieve architectural excellence designed by architects throughout New York State.

Twenty five projects were recognized for Citation, Merit and Honor Awards in the following categories: Adaptive Reuse/Historic Preservation, Commercial/Industrial, Institutional, Interiors, International, Pro Bono Projects, Residential, Sole Practitioner, Unbuilt and Urban Planning/Design.

The Design Awards Jury, including Jury Chair Chris Dawson, AIA of Chris Dawson Architect; Jen Zaborney of Best Space; Joseph Biondo, FAIA of Spillman Farmer Architects; and Peter Bohlin, FAIA of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, had the challenge of choosing a handful of winners out of almost three hundred submissions. Out of the 25 award recipients, the jury also selected one project considered to be the “Best of the Best.” This year’s recipient is The Statue of Liberty Museum, designed by FXCollaborative.
