2015 AIA Housing Awards and AIA/HUD Secretary's Awards

 
  The Housing Awards program, now in its 15th year, was established to recognize the best in housing design and promote the importance of good housing as a necessity of life, a sanctuary for the human spirit and a  valuable national resource. The AIA/HUD Secretary's Awards recognizes excellence in affordable housing architecture, neighborhood design, participatory design, and accessibility. 
The esteemed jury of architects, educators, and writers recognized 10 projects for AIA Housing Awards and 4 projects for the AIA/HUD Secretary's Awards from a very competitive pool of entries.  This publication celebrates and is part of our ongoing effort to document this good work.
