2020 Architectural Excellence Special Awards Recipient Gallery

AIA Pennsylvania Architectural Excellence Special Awards includes recognition of significant achievements by members, citizen architects, non-members, civic and government leaders, allied professionals, and member firms who contribute to the built environment and the advancement of the profession in the Commonwealth. The AIA Pennsylvania membership at large, nearly 3,000 members strong, is given the opportunity to nominate individuals or firms for these honors. This year’s ad hoc Special Awards Nomination Committee deliberated on the nine Architectural Excellence Special Awards to put forth a final slate of Architectural Excellence Special Award recipients to the AIA Pennsylvania board for approval. Special Awards Nomination Committee members with conflicts recused themselves from deliberation if a conflict was present in a category. The votes of Special Awards Nomination Committee members and Board members with conflicts were not counted for or against the majority approval votes needed to accept the recipients. Special thanks to this year’s Special Awards Nomination Committee chaired by Jeff Goldstein, FAIA. Jeff and Committee on Design Chair, Bob Kelly, convened committee members Bill Bates, Anne Chen, Chris Dawson, Maggie McManus, Elysia Mikkelsen, Marc Mondor, and Jayne Spector.
