Design awards submittals are open to built or unbuilt architectural projects of all types and sizes, and can be submitted by individuals or firms either residing in or whose submitted project is located in the chapter’s seven-county region. All designs must have been produced within the past five years.
The awards are juried by a panel of non-competing, award-winning, out-of-area architects who have not served as design awards jurors for at least the past 5 years. Multiple Honor and Merit Awards may be awarded in each category as entries are solely and individually weighted on their value of design excellence. However, only one project will be awarded the top award – the H. Dean Rowe, FAIA Award for Design Excellence. Winners will be announced at a Reception on Thursday, November 1st at the Tampa Museum of Art in downtown Tampa.
