The national chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) has recognized five projects with its 2023 Regional & Urban Design Awards.
The awards recognize the best in urban design, regional and city planning, and community development.
The five-member jury evaluates each submission based on how well the designs address environmental, social, and economic issues through sustainable strategies. This includes collecting and distributing resident renewable resources and energies while enhancing quality of life and promoting social equity.
In 2023, two of the five recipients are by Pennsylvania architects. They include Completing the Loop by evolve environment :: architecture, based in Pittsburgh, and East End Transformation by KieranTimberlake, out of Philadelphia.
East End Transformation was honored with an AIA Pennsylvania Architectural Excellence Award in 2020.
