2022 AIA San Diego - Student Honor Award, 1st Place

The American Institute of Architects, San Diego Chapter (AIASD), proudly announces the 2021/2022 Design Award recipients—a list honoring innovative design, with an emphasis on sustainability over a broad range of categories. This year had a particular focus on design excellence in San Diego- celebrating those projects that demonstrate exemplary design skill of formal, functional and technical requirements, including ecological and environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and a strong sense of place.

Award winners were announced to the AIA San Diego membership on Thursday, May 19th at the annual Design Awards ceremony. The 2021/2022 Design Awards ceremony took place at the Guild Hotel in Downtown San Diego following a two-year hiatus of traditional awards gatherings.

In March, a five-person jury deliberated between more than 100 entries and refined the list to a select group who were honored from the podium at the awards ceremony. The buildings span a spectrum from residential to institutional and included multifamily, museum, commercial, municipal, research, hospitality, utilitarian, and urban design.

This year’s jury comprised five dynamic voices from AIA Texas: Jury Chair: Andrew Herdeg, FAIA, Maija Kreishman, AIA, Shelby Blessing, AIA, Trinity White, AIA, and Ricardo Maga Rojas, Assoc. AIA.
