AIA International is the broadest geographical region of the American Institute of Architects. The AIA International Region Design Awards recognizes best practices, innovative thinking, and design excellence of AIA member projects worldwide. All Architect members of the the AIA International Region are eligible to submit entries for projects located anywhere in the world (except US). All Architect members who are non-local members of an International Chapter may submit projects only within the territory of that same International Chapter. See more details here.
There will be global recognition of the awards with presentations to be held at the IR's annual conference in Singapore, November 2-4, and the winners will also be displayed in Washington D.C., at the historic Octagon at AIA headquarters in early 2019. Additionally a special new opportunity to receive instant and ongoing recognition throughout the coming year for projects which are recognized by our design jury first and then by carbon energy efficiency experts for designs which reduce energy use, optimize natural resources and steward human health.
