Annually since 1968, AIA New York State’s Design Awards celebrate local, national and international projects that achieve architectural excellence designed by architects who are licensed and registered in New York State.

Twenty-four projects were recognized for Citation, Merit, and Honor Awards in the following categories: Adaptive Reuse/Historic Preservation, Commercial/Industrial, Institutional, Interiors, Pro Bono Projects, Residential, Small Firms, Unbuilt and Urban Planning/Design. Small Firms, a new category this year, replaces and broadens the original Sole Practitioner category to be more inclusive and reflective of our membership.

The 2022 Design Awards jury was comprised of Jury Chair Benjamin Kasdan, AIA, Principal and Design Leader at KTGY; Jennifer Marsh, AIA, Founder and Principal at Mowery Marsh Architects; Pamela Lucas Rew, FAIA, Partner Emeritus at KSS Architects; Dawn Carpenter, CPM®, broker-owner of Dawning Real Estate Inc. AMO®; and Kenneth MacKay, AIA, Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Architecture, University at Buffalo. Out of the 24 award recipients, the jury also selected one project considered to be the “Best of the Best,” which will be revealed at the virtual awards ceremony in March.

Benjamin Kasdan, AIA, the 2022 Design Awards Jury Chair stated, “The jury was impressed and inspired by the depth and quality of this year’s AIA New York State design awards submissions. We particularly liked that many projects address pressing social issues, like climate action and housing for vulnerable populations, but that also bring joyful experiences to users of those buildings and spaces.”
