On May 7, the 2015 AIA Florida/Caribbean Design Awards Jury convened in Boston to evaluate the nearly 300 projects submitted for this year's awards program.
After a full day of deliberation, the jury ultimately selected 25 projects for recognition. Jury members included Chris Genter, AIA, LEED AP of Boston firm, Utile; Diane Dooley, AIA, LEED AP, principal and senior living project practice leader at DiMella Shaffer and leader of the AIA's Design for Aging Community; and Nader Tehrani, principal and founder of NADAAA and professor at the MIT School of Architecture and Planning.
Projects may be given an Honor Award (the higher of the two) or a Merit Award for design in each respective category. Winners will be recognized on August 1, during the 2015 AIA Florida Convention at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. It is with distinct pleasure that AIA Florida recognizes UACDC along with 24 other firms for their selection for a 2015 AIA Florida/Caribbean Design Award. Two UACDC projects, the Trailhead Complex at Maumelle Nature Center and the Little Rock Creative Corridor have received Honor Awards.
