About the AIA Dallas Unbuilt Design Awards

Unbuilt work and design explorations by AIA Dallas members have the ability to showcase progressive ideas and design solutions, and provoke a discussion about the future of design among the community and Dallas architects. An Unbuilt entry may be any building design, conceptual or theory-based design study, interior architecture, restoration, or urban design/planning project for which the documentation has been complete since January 1, 2013. The AIA Dallas Design Awards program is seeking entries responsive to beauty, poetry, context and previous condition, inspiration, process, environmental and social impact, economy and consumption.

About the AIA Dallas Student Design Awards

The second year of AIA Dallas' Student Design Awards seeks to recognize the most innovative and thoughtful student work from the architectural programs which have historically supplied talent to AIA Dallas member firms. We are seeking submissions from Texas universities, with award-winning work being recognized at the announcement event and published professionally.
