10,000 Friends Commonwealth Awards, celebrated in December 2021, honored projects, plans, and initiatives that demonstrate smart growth, community resilience, and equity principles in action. The awards annually recognize individuals, businesses, and organizations with the vision to find new uses for vacant and underutilized land, increase opportunities and access for all in communities on the rise, and breathe new life into older neighborhoods.
Congratulations to the following AIA Pennsylvania members and affiliated firms that were honored for their contributions across the Commonwealth to healthy, resilient, and vibrant communities for all.
