2020 AIA Housing Awards and AIA-HUD Secretary’s Awards Celebration 

04-14-2021 02:33 PM

AIA Housing Awards and AIA/HUD Secretary’s Awards recognize exceptional design in various types of housing. The winners’ designs represent the best practices in the field that reflect a commitment to sustainability, inclusivity, and accessibility to foster healthy neighborhoods and communities.


Our current housing crisis is an inevitable effect of the economic, social, and ideological imbalances in this country.  The panel will discuss various approaches that the winners are using to address these challenges through housing design. The panel will also explore the role of housing as an opportunity to rethink diverse forms of living, to provide innovative ways to combat shortages, and to promote a sustainable and responsible accelerated growth and densification.
