August 20, 2020Entries Open 9/7 for 2020 AIANY + ASLANY Transportation + Infrastructure Design Excellence Awards
The New York chapters of the AIA and ASLA organize an annual awards program to celebrate design excellence in transportation and infrastructure architecture. The AIANY + ASLANY Transportation + Infrastructure Design Excellence Awards recognizes built and unbuilt projects for their design, innovation, and impact.
Projects reflecting the partnership’s commitment to sustainability, community engagement, social equity, and civic architecture will be celebrated. The awards program, subsequent publications, and events will raise awareness about the critical role that well-designed infrastructure plays in our cities, our communities, and our lives. This awards program is co-sponsored by the AIANY Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and the ASLA NY Chapter.
The awards program, first launched in 2018, has received over 100 submissions and has recognized truly outstanding projects submitted by national and internationally known firms in addition to smaller local practices. See the 2018 and 2019 award winners and jurors.
The jury will be a diverse group of prominent professionals’ representative of the national design community. Each entry is judged for design excellence, and that the project has met its individual requirements or program. Entries are weighed individually, not competitively.
Registration will open on September 7, 2020. Submissions will be due on November 2, 2020. See more submission details here.
Transportation and Infrastructure
The AIANY Transportation and Infrastructure Committee focuses on planning, architectural design, technical, and policy issues related to transportation and infrastructure, including systems and civic facilities to accommodate marine, aviation, and land-based transit, as well as energy, water and waste distribution networks. It is the mission of the committee to examine the architecture of, and to advocate for design quality in, transportation and infrastructure projects. We invite all committee members, and those interested in joining the committee, to join us at our monthly meetings on the 4th Thursday of the month at 6pm on Zoom unless noted. We are always looking for enthusiastic participants interested in contributing to the programs or assisting in other ways!
