people's choice awards
2015 PCA AWARD WINNERS
Each year, the American Institute of Architects, Southwestern Oregon Chapter (AIA-SWO) in collaboration with the Willamette Valley Section of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) sponsors the People’s Choice Awards for Architecture. These awards aim to educate and inspire our fellow citizens by showcasing architecture, interiors and landscape architecture projects created within the Southwestern Oregon Chapter area by AIA or ASLA members. The program demonstrates to the public the role of the architectural profession in enhancing the built environment.
This year's AIA-SWO annual People's Choice Awards program drew 27 entrants across 7 categories. The boards were on display at the Broadway Commerce Building lobby. A concluding tradition to this event, is an awards ceremony held during a monthly AIA-SWO meeting where award winning firms are presented with certificates and are invited to say a few words about their project and give a well deserved shout-out to the full design team. An added bonus to this year's ceremony was a presentation by Mayor Kitty Piercy who shared her reasons for selecting her Mayor's Choice awards. Click here to view a video of her presentation.
