Design Awards

AIA Charlotte Design Awards  seeks to honor your continued passion, vigor, and commitment to finding unique solutions to the incredible challenges and incredible opportunities that we face. The past few years have been challenging and transformative years that have had a lasting impact on our lives & the way that we approach design and practice. The Pandemic, the Economy, heightened recognition of Social, Racial and Gender Equality, and immense Climate Change Challenges among others have all influenced our thinking and sense of compassion for our work, clients, and the communities we serve.

Our resilience as professionals has been exemplary and we have collectively found ways to push forward; exceeding expectations, responding to today's challenges with grace and continuing to advance design. We encourage you to dig deeper; finding the best of your work but supporting your submissions with more about the project's story and the unique challenges faced by your team.
