Each year, AIA Pennsylvania celebrates the great work that Pennsylvania’s architects are doing to affect positive social, environmental, and economic outcomes for their clients and communities. The AIA Pennsylvania Architectural Excellence Design Awards celebrate the exemplary design achievements of members and the impact of architecture regardless of budget, size, style, or type. The jury recognizes projects deemed worthy of recognition with the following levels of distinction.

  • Silver Medal | A Silver Medal may be granted, at the jury’s discretion, to the project that distinguishes itself from the rest of the submissions representing the highest level of achievement.
  • Honor Award | An Honor Award may be granted, at the jury’s discretion, to projects that exemplify distinguished achievement in any category.
  • Merit Award |  A Merit Award may be granted, at the jury’s discretion, to any project that either lies outside of the other categories or bears an exceptional aspect that the jury feels represents excellence that deserves recognition.
