    AIA COTE Top Ten Awards: submit by January 15

    Each year, the AIA COTE® Top Ten Awards recognizes 10 projects that exemplify the integration of design excellence and sustainable performance. The program elevates achievements in design across measures of social, economic, and environmental value. The awards are increasingly looking for projects that demonstrate sustainability and high performance to make an impact in the current climate crisis. Start your submission today. 

    The Top Ten is the flagship program of AIA COTE, which has been leading and defining design excellence for 30 years. The Top Ten is still the most recognized awards program for leading-edge architecture demonstrating the fusion of design and performance. Don't miss the opportunity to submit for the 2020 awards cycle, which will celebrate the integrated teams and forward-thinking clients who create these projects -- and share their lessons with the industry. 

    And what a jury: Bob Berkebile, FAIA, BNIM; Roy Decker, FAIA, Duval Decker; William Horgan, Intl. Assoc. AIA, Grimshaw; Andrea Love, AIA, Payette; and Vivian Loftness, FAIA, Carnegie Mellon University.
